Nottingham Forest Manager Steve Cooper Sends Strong Warning To Man United Ahead Of Cup Semi-Final

“It’s not been an easy ride for sure to get to the [Carabao Cup] semi-final,” explained Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper.

“And we’ve treated it like every other game, one we want to do well in and win. Unfortunately, we’re out of the FA Cup, we’re not very proud of that and the way we went about it, but these two games now fall in a two-week Premier League break.”

Cooper continued: “There’s enough recovery and preparation time to be ready for these games, there’s no doubt about that. The two games have actually come at a good time.

“It’s a semi-final, we really want to commit to it, we really want to attack it. Obviously, it’s Man United, it’s over two legs, incredibly tough games – but ones we want to have no regrets about.

“We’re in the semi-final of an important cup. I think we should go into it thinking they don’t come along very often, so treat it like it might be the last one.

“There’s a real good feeling about the semi-final in the city, the stadium will obviously be the atmosphere that it’s been every single game so far this season, which has been incredible, and we should really embrace that.”

United face a tough test against Forest as Erik ten Hag looks to end the club’s trophyless run over the past few years.

Forest are currently 13th in the standings and lost 3-0 to the Red Devils earlier this season.
