  • Rumours Of Nottingham Forest Talks With Nuno Espirito Santo Ramps Up Pressure On Steve Cooper

Rumours of Nottingham Forest talks with Nuno Espirito Santo ramps up pressure on Steve Cooper

Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper is hanging on to his job by the barest of threads if reports the club are holding talks with Nuno Espirito Santo are correct.

Cooper’s tenure is in doubt following a run of just one win in 13 Premier League games, which has seen Forest plummet to just five points above the drop zone.

Officials from the club have spoken to the Portuguese about replacing Cooper.

Nuno has been out of work since leaving Saudi Pro League club Al-Ittihad in November. He appears in line for a return to the Premier League two years after his sacking from an ill-fated four-month stay at Spurs.

Cooper has had the support of the Forest fans after taking them from the bottom of the Championship to Premier League survival last season.

It was fan power that saved him from the sack last term, but with another summer of heavy investment from owner Evangelos Marinakis, it looks as if the Greek businessman has lost patience.

Reports in Portugal suggest a deal for Nuno could be tied up before Saturday’s home clash with Bournemouth.
