Nottingham Forest have reportedly opened talks with manager Sabri Lamouchi over a new deal at the club according to The Telegraph.
The Forest boss has been hugely impressive in his time with the club so far, and has guided the Reds to fifth in the Championship table.
There were some questions raised when he was appointed in the summer of 2019, with some fans worried about his lack of experience in English football.
But Lamouchi’s side have been impressive this term, and are in with a real chance of winning a long-awaited promotion back into the Premier League.
However, due to recent off-the-field events, that promotion bid has been put on hold, with Lamouchi and his staff taking pay cuts to help the club financially during this difficult period.
We look at THREE reasons why Nottingham Forest’s reported decision on entering talks with Lamouchi over a new deal is the right call.
He’s reinstalled the belief of the Nottingham Forest supporters.
Nottingham Forest have been somewhat of a ‘sleeping giant’ in the Championship for a number of years now.
But since Lamouchi has taken charge of the Reds, the club’s supporters might be forgiven for starting to believe that they could make a long-awaited promotion.
When the Forest supporters are at their vocal best, then it provides a real boost to the players on the pitch, as they look to get over the line in the race for promotion this term.
The signings he has made have made a positive impact.
It was a summer of change at the City Ground, as Lamouchi made a number of signings in the hope of changing their fortunes in the Championship.
The likes of Brice Samba (pictured above), Samba Sow, Tiago Silva and Yuri Ribeiro was just some of the players to sign for the Reds after Lamouchi arrived
They have all made a positive impact this season for Forest, and without them, you have to question whether they’d be in the position they’re currently in.
Lamouchi has clearly got a good eye for finding players that will make a difference, and the City Ground faithful will be hoping that remains the case in future transfer windows.
Nottingham Forest’s results speak for themselves.
Forest are currently sat fifth in the Championship table, and have impressed this term under the management of Lamouchi.
They have also beaten the likes of league-leaders Leeds United earlier this term, and have shown that they can beat any team in second tier when they’re at their best.
The future looks bright at the City Ground, especially if Lamouchi is to commit his long-term future to the club.
