Nottingham Forest Appoints Nuno Espirito Santo as New Manager on Two-and-a-Half-Year Deal

Nottingham Forest has secured the services of Nuno Espirito Santo, appointing the former Wolves and Tottenham manager on a two-and-a-half-year contract. The move comes in the wake of Steve Cooper’s departure after two years, with Forest facing challenges, having lost five of their recent six league games and currently holding the 17th position in the table.

Nuno, who previously managed Wolves for four successful years, including securing promotion from the Championship in his debut season, will take charge of Forest starting with the upcoming home Premier League clash against Bournemouth this Saturday.

The 49-year-old Portuguese manager left Wolves in 2021 to join Tottenham but faced an abrupt exit within four months following a string of defeats. Subsequently, he took charge at Saudi Pro-League club Al-Ittihad in July 2022, where he led the team to a Saudi title last season but was released 12 games into the current campaign due to a series of unfavorable results.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s managerial prowess and experience will be put to the test as he endeavors to guide Nottingham Forest out of their current league struggles and foster a positive trajectory for the club.
