Nottingham Forest’s Chris Burke: I wish I had Michail Antonio’s physique

Forest City Ground

Chris Burke seems to admire the strength of Nottingham Forest teammate Michail Antonio.

Nottingham Forest winger Chris Burke has told BBC Nottingham Sport that he wishes he had the physique of teammate Michail Antonio.

Winger Antonio is rated as one of the strongest players in the Championship, and his strength is an asset to him.

Burke has now admitted that he tries hard in the gym to get the physique of the 24-year-old, but in vain.

Antonio is one of the best players in the Forest squad, and he will be key in the coming weeks of the season if the Reds are to launch a late challenge for the Championship playoffs.

The former Reading star has scored 12 goals and created 48 chances in 38 Championship games so far this season, while having a pass accuracy of 58% and a shot accuracy of 44%.

Forest are currently ninth in the league table with 57 points from 38 matches, eight points behind sixth-placed Brentford.
