Nuno Espirito Santo: Nottingham Forest hold talks amid concern over the future of manager Steve Cooper

In November, the 49-year-old was fired by Saudi Pro-League team Al-Ittihad.

Former Eintracht Frankfurt manager Oliver Glasner has also been suggested as a possible replacement if Cooper leaves, but it appears Nuno is now in the lead.

Forest, who are 17th in the Premier League table, have won only one of their last 13 games and collected eight points.

They’ve also won only one of their last six games and sit five points ahead of third-bottom Luton, who have a game in hand.

Is bringing Nuno in the right move? Is Cooper deserving of additional time? Put your thoughts down here.

Cooper has always had the support of the Forest fans, but owner Evangelos Marinakis has grown increasingly anxious about his club’s condition.

Forest host Bournemouth at the City Ground on Saturday, followed by trips to Newcastle United on December 26 and Manchester United at home on December 30.

Nuno led Wolves to promotion from the Championship in his debut season in charge, followed by consecutive seventh-place finishes in the Premier League and a run to the Europa League quarter-finals.

The Portuguese former goalkeeper left Molineux in the summer of 2021 to join Tottenham Hotspur, although he was fired after less than four months in command due to a sequence of five defeats in seven games.

He joined Al-Ittihad in July 2022 and led the Jeddah-based club to the Saudi title last season before being fired 12 games into the new season due to a string of poor results.

He was formerly in charge of Rio Ave, Valencia, and Porto.
