Nottingham Forest have been in contact with Jorge Sampaoli should the club part ways with Steve Cooper.
Nottingham Forest’s sporting situation has been critical for some time. The club is now 18th in the relegation zone and Steve Cooper’s position as manager is regularly questioned. After the defeat against Leeds United last week, there were many rumours that Steve Cooper was about to be sacked. Finally, Evangelos Marinakis, the owner of the club, issued a statement saying that he still supports his manager and that no change of manager was planned.
However, Steve Cooper’s position is not guaranteed, especially after the defeat against Aston Villa last Saturday. And to ensure that the club’s future is secure, the club has reportedly contacted new coaches.
According to GOAL, Nottingham Forest have approached renowned Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli. Despite his recent dismissal from Sevilla, he remains an excellent coach and is currently also being followed by Flamengo in Brazil. According to GOAL, the Argentine has not yet responded to Nottingham Forest’s requests for contact.
