Europa League: Boniface Shines with Goal and Assist in Leverkusen’s Victory Over Hacken


Former goalkeeper, Matt Turner has explained why he left Arsenal during the summer transfer window to join rival Nottingham Forest.

Turner said his wife gave him approval to leave Arsenal, adding Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper also persuaded him to join Forest.

Speaking to The Athletic, the 29-year-old said (via GOAL): “I asked a lot of questions about what they [Forest and their manager] saw in me; about why they felt I was a good fit here.

“Those conversations ticked every box when it came to what I wanted to hear. My wife was listening in and, when we finished the call, she gave me the nod of approval.

“She could see it in my face and I felt good about it. Even when other teams came in, I had tunnel vision. I knew this was the place I wanted to be.”

Turner had joined Arsenal from New England Revolution in June 2022 for $6 million.
