‘Where’s my manners! Welcome to Twitter’: Djed Spence aims dig at Neil Warnock following Nottingham Forest’s promotion to the Premier League… after his former boss previously claimed he could end up being a NON-LEAGUE player
- Neil Warnock has previously questioned Djed Spence’s dedication to the sport
- He has claimed that this problem could lead to him dropping down the leagues
- However, Spence has been promoted to the Premier League via the play-offs
- He poked fun at Warnock afterwards, by sarcastically welcoming him to Twitter
Djed Spence has poked fun at his former boss Neil Warnock after gaining promotion to the Premier League with Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
The 21-year-old played under Warnock for Middlesbrough, and back in November 2020, the veteran manager claimed that he had the talent to play in the Premier League, but that his dedication to the game could see him playing non-league football in five years’ time.
Spence played the full 90 minutes in Forest’s 1-0 play-off final win against Huddersfield at Wembley, and he could not resist having a dig at Warnock afterwards on social media.

‘Oh, Where’s my Manners! Welcome to Twitter @warnockofficial,’ Spence posted, alongside a picture of himself holding a cigar, with the play-off trophy at his feet.
Warnock recently joined Twitter, and Spence has made it clear that he should be prepared to face stick from players and fans alike moving forward.
Before departing Middlesbrough in November, Warnock was happy to loan Spence out last summer, and the promising full-back has flourished at the City Ground this term.
He has made 50 appearances in all competitions, registering three goals and five assists.

Spence also made his England Under-21 debut in March in a 3-0 win against Albania.
His performances have caught the eye of Tottenham, who have been linked with making a move for him once the transfer window opens.
Whether he ends up playing for Forest or Tottenham next season, Spence looks set to be a Premier League player, and he is unsurprisingly delighted to have proved Warnock wrong.
