Lewis Grabban has been involved in a dispute with Nottingham Forest over the extent of his alleged injury and the course of action he chose to take to aid his recovery, reports the Daily Mail.
The 31-year-old has missed Forest’s last two league games with an achilles injury, but Grabban’s decision to use a personal fitness coach for his rehabilitation has caused an issue at the club.
The fitness coach is believed to have given advice that goes against the experts at Forest, and the severity of Grabban’s injury has been questioned too. The incident reportedly irritated the centre-forward and has forced Martin O’Neill to mediate the situation.

Grabban has unsurprisingly denied the report on social media and should feature against Hull City on Saturday afternoon or Aston Villa on Wednesday evening so long as his treatment goes well.
The report does state that close sources to Grabban believe he knows his body and would play if possible, so the Daily Mail might be partaking in hear-say and hyperbole when describing this situation.
He’s an important player to the club, having scored 15 goals in 31 Championship games in his debut season, so Forest will be desperate to have him back as soon as possible
