A Nottingham Forest player describes a “strange” injury as strange information surfaced.

During Nottingham Forest’s loss to Brighton earlier this month, Anthony Elanga disclosed that he shattered one of his fingers.

On a five-year contract, the winger left Manchester United to join the City Ground in July 2023. In 31 games across all competitions thus far in Garibaldi Red, he has tallied five goals and seven assists.

Additionally, since the Reds’ 1-0 loss at the Amex Stadium, the Sweden international has disclosed that he has been dealing with an injury. Elanga has revealed that despite being informed by the physicians that he had broken his ring finger against the Seagulls, he did not experience any discomfort.

“I realize this seems unusual, but I had no feelings at all. I fractured my ring finger,” he said, as reported by SportWitness on Fotbollskanalen.

“It was against Brighton’s will. I noticed that it was a little large after the game. Our doctor told me, “I think you’ve broken it,” when I asked. Although it didn’t hurt, I was astonished and assumed it was nothing.

The 21-year-old will play in friendlies against Portugal and Albania in March after being called up for international action. He won’t be competing at the European Championships this summer, though, as Sweden was unable to qualify.

In recent interviews, Elanga has expressed that he is “licking his lips” at the chance to collaborate with former Blackburn Rovers manager and current Sweden manager Jon Dahl Tomasson.

“Working with him will be really interesting,” he said to Discovery+ through Fotbollskanalen. “I believe everyone in the offensive department is licking their lips, knowing that he was a great striker who won many titles. He was a great striker in his time.”

“With us, he is the first foreign national team captain. Working with him is going to be a lot of fun. We need something different since we live in a new era and a new generation, and it’s finally here. With the national team, perhaps this is just the beginning of something significant.
