Steve Cooper, the manager of Nottingham Forest, is pleased with the robust competition within his squad for starting roles.
After securing notable wins against Chelsea and Sheffield United, the club has added fresh talent, including Chris Wood and Divock Origi, to challenge existing players like Taiwo Awoniyi.
Additionally, the team welcomed Antony Elanga and Callum Hudson-Odoi, as well as defensive reinforcements Nicolas Dominguez, Goncalo Montiel, and Ola Aina.
With the departure of Keylor Navas, Matt Turner has arrived to claim the top goalkeeper spot.
In an interview prior to the match against Burnley, Cooper shared his enthusiasm for the competitive environment at the club.
He stated that this fierce rivalry for positions enhances the squad's overall performance, from the goalkeepers to the attacking line.
Cooper wants to maintain this competitive culture as his team aims for another win to climb the Premier League standings.
