Nuno Espirito Santo named Nottingham Forest head coach, replacing Steve Cooper

Posted : 20 December 2023

After a winless streak of six games, the Nottingham Forest board decided to part ways with Steve Cooper. In his place, they appointed Nuno Espirito Santo, the former manager of Tottenham and Wolves, who recently led Al-Ittihad in Saudi Arabia. 


Nuno's inaugural match will be the home Premier League fixture against Bournemouth on Saturday, December 23. Nottingham Forest is currently positioned 17th in the Premier League.

 


Nuno Espirito Santo has secured a two-and-a-half-year contract at The City Ground. The Portuguese coach, previously in charge of Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia, faces the challenge of reviving Forest after a disappointing run of results. 


His coaching debut will be the home league match against Bournemouth on December 23, with Forest sitting five points above the relegation zone in the Premier League.


Steve Cooper, who led the club back to the top flight in 2022, was dismissed after a series of defeats, marking the end of his tenure. Despite the decision, owner Evangelos Marinakis acknowledged Cooper's historic achievement, expressing gratitude for his dedication and connection with the fans. 


Nuno, known for his managerial successes at Rio Ave, Valencia, and Porto, guided Wolves to the Premier League before a brief stint at Tottenham, where he was sacked after a challenging start to the season.
