Nottingham Forest and Super Eagles forward, Awoniyi Taiwo has fired back at those who claimed he has been below par and flopped in the English Premier League with just half of a year into his time with the tricky trees.
The former Liverpool man, Awoniyi made a return last summer to the Premier League after he spent six wishy-washy seasons with the Reds that was largely spent on loan away from the Merseyside based club.
The former Union Berlin man enjoyed a great time while in Germany, performing above expectations and making a name for himself.
Taiwo Awoniyi scored an impressive twenty five (25) goals in sixty-five (65) Premier League appearances which ignited a desire in the tricky trees, Nottingham Forest to go for the striker in the last summer transfer window.
Awonyi Taiwo Joined a list of over 10 players that was brought into the squad by Evangelos Marinakis with the goal firmly in mind at avoiding relegation and also having a comfortable stay in the Premier League after they got promoted to the top tier of English Football, the English Premier League.
An individual on the microblogging app, Twitter, tagged the man who has been saddled with the responsibility to get goals for the Nottingham Forest side alongside Nigerian International Emmanuel Dennis who joined the club from Watford FC in the 2022/23 summer transfer window as well.
The Twitter user while making a response to a tweet tagged Taiwo Awoniyi, Claudia Pizzaro and Emmanuel Dennis as flops in the Premier League.
The individual Tweeted, “Did you forget or intentionally omitted Kezmam, Claudio Pizzaro, Emmanuel Dennis, Taiwo Awoniyi and the others that came with higher reputations flopped heavily? The EPL is different in terms of pace and space and you know it, stop being a hypocrite.”
The Forest forward, Awoniyi Taiwo was not happy with the tweet and he fired back with his own shot lambasting the individual for lack of understanding and knowledge of the beautiful game, football.
Awoniyi Taiwo tweeted, “I hope some people can be well informed or educated on what’s football, especially Nigeria (sic).
“I believe it will help, so most people won’t just come here and just put up a tweet anyhow.
“Unfortunately the well-educated also have sides and favouritism. That’s why I will sick end up missing the World Cup.”
It shows that truly Awoniyi was angered by that statement but in all parameters, the Nottingham Forest forward has performed relatively well but for strikers that hovering cloud of goals is always the yardstick to many fans.
The man who has got the hopes of Steve Cooper and Evangelos Marinakis would be doing all in his powers to prove doubters wrong going forward.
