Nottingham Forest could be set to offer former Swansea City assistant manager Pep Clotet the manager’s job at The City Ground according to the Nottingham Post.
The 38 year old Barcelona born coach is looking for a route back into football after leaving Swansea City in December following former Swans boss Garry Monk’s sacking.
Struggling Nottingham Forest sacked manager Dougie Freedman last month after a poor run of results and Paul Williams has been handed the reigns until the end of the season. Nottingham Forest have so far recorded one draw and three defeats during Williams’ spell in charge although the club’s slide should have come too late to result in any relegation trouble.
With a permanent new manager set to be appointed ahead of next season, it is understood that Forest owner Fawaz Al Hasawi has identified Pep Clotet as a man who could bring an attractive new style of passing football to The City Ground. Clotet has a history of developing young players both in Spain with Espanyol and with previous club Swansea City.
The season started with Forest fans full of hope for the new campaign but a number of disastrous performances have resulted in the club sacking yet another manager and Forest find themselves in the lowly position of 20th in the Championship table.
Next season is a crucial one for Nottingham Forest with the club looking to improve massively on the pitch and appointing a suitable new manager is key for the club’s future success.
