Favourites for Nottingham Forest manager

After Aitor Karanka departed from Nottingham Forest yesterday, we’ve taken a look at who are favourites for the job at the City Ground.

He was appointed in January 2018 and has left the City Ground with the club 7th in the Championship table.

Recent bad form, no win in five games, saw Forest fall from 7th to 10th, but a 4-2 saw them climb back up to where they were and just four points off the playoff zone.

Take a look at who are the top six favourites below and on the next page.



Gary Rowett is currently without a job after he was sacked by mid-table Stoke City earlier this week.

As well as the Potters, the former Derby County player has previously managed Burton Albion and Birmingham City.

A year ago, according to The Mirror, Rowett was approached by Forest’s potential US owners and was said to be “keen” on taking over until the £50m takeover deal collapsed.

Rowett again is said to be interested in replacing Karanka at Forest.

Burton Albion have impressed many by reaching the semi finals of the Carabao Cup, and because of their good run, Nigel Clough is being backed to take over as first team manager at the City Ground.

He is a Forest legend from his playing days at the club, where his Father, Brian Clough achieved plenty of success.

Clough was offered the job in January 2017 but he remained with the Brewers and kept them up in the Championship that season. Burton now sit 9th in League One.

Former Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim recently turned down the chance to take over at Lyon.

The Mail reported in December that Marinakis had identified him as a potential replacement.
