Angel Gomes asks James Garner question as Man United loanee scores again

2 min read

Angles Gomes has asked James Garner if he meant to score his brilliant free-kick against Queens Park Rangers on Easter Monday.

Garner is earning plaudits for his performances on loan at Nottingham Forest this year and has been realising the potential that has already seen him play seven times for Manchester United.

The youngster struggled for appearances on loan at Watford in the first-half of the season but has hit a rich vein of form since joining the East Midlands side in January and has scored in his last two games.

After grabbing the only goal in a 1-0 win over Cardiff on Friday, Garner’s latest strike came in Forest’s 3-1 victory over QPR on Easter Monday, as he bent a free-kick from near the corner of the pitch straight into the top corner of the goal.

The 20-year-old has flourished at Forest, earning the admiration of the club’s supporters, but his former academy teammate Gomes doubts if he meant to score the goal.

Replying to a video of the goal on Twitter, Gomes jokingly said: “Bout time @jgarner96,” accompanied with laughing emojis.

He continued: “did u mean it though bro?”

Garner responded to the tweet claiming that his goal was in fact intentional. He said: “Course I did bro,” with a love heart and hand shake emoji.

Although Gomes has questioned whether Garner meant to score his goal, United great Rio Ferdinand was obviously impressed as he replied with a fire emoji.

Garner’s manager at Forest, Chris Hughton, has also been full of praise for the 20-year-old.

“He was really good again today and he has a maturity for his age. It is a hard feat at that age,” Hughton said following a draw with Brentford last month.

“At this moment it is great development for him and you can only play like you are and be in the team if you are good enough and at this moment we are delighted to have him.”
