Manchester United loanee James Garner has broken his silence after gaining promotion to the Premier League with Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
Garner stole the show at Wembley Stadium as Forest and Huddersfield Town played out a cagey contest under the arch. The 21-year-old had a hand in the only goal of the contest on the stroke of half time.
His fizzed in cross caused havoc among the Yorkshire club’s backline as Levi Colwill directed the ball into his own net to give Steve Cooper’s side what proved to be an unassailable advantage. Forest join AFC Bournemouth and Fulham in the top flight next season.
Post-match United fans were calling for Garner to be given a chance in the first team at Old Trafford under Erik ten Hag. United are looking for a midfielder this summer after Nemanja Matic departed and the Reds’ supporters believe that Garner could be a ready made solution.
But for now Garner’s full attention is on Forest and he took to Instagram to celebrate his loan club’s victory. Posing with the play off trophy and his medal, Garner simply posted: “Premier League babyyyyyyyyyy.”
