Ex-La Liga boss the latest odds on favourite for Forest job

Former Deportivo manager Victor Sanchez is the latest name to become odds on for the Nottingham Forest job. Ryan Giggs has now drifted out to second favourite, but the Spaniard could now be heading to the City Ground.

With Greek investors rumoured to be looking to take over the club, there is a connection with Sanchez. The 40-year-old was previously assistant manager of Olympiacos.

Sanchez, who is a previous Real Madrid midfield player, has also been on the coaching staffs of Getafe and Sevilla. After a year in charge of Deportivo, he was sacked at the end of the season.

Rumours are now forever growing that he could be the next Nottingham Forest manager. Supporters have grown forever frustrated in the lack of managerial appointment before now. Dougie Freedman was dismissed in March. Paul Williams ended the season in caretaker charge. He has since left the club as well.

Sanchez also played well over 200 matches as a player for Deportivo La Coruna. He too had a spell playing in Greece with Panathinaikos, before ending his career with Spanish side Elche.

It remains to be seen how serious this link is with the Championship club. Several names have been short-priced favourites for this role in the last few months. Steve Evans and Oscar Garcia are just two more than can be added to that category.

The club do certainly need to be quick, as practically every often Football League club have now appointed a manager for next season. Nevertheless, Al Hasawi insists fans should not panic.
