Nottingham Forest are looking to put the past behind them, as they look ahead to a bright future with new man Aitor Karanka at the helm.
Indeed, after Mark Warburton’s disappointing start to the season that has seen Forest live life in the bottom half of the table, their latest appointment can certainly help push them up the Football League.
Although, after beating Arsenal in the FA Cup in their last encounter, it’s important that they don’t get carried away with a difficult test against Aston Villa being the first game in charge under new management.
For such a historic club that belongs in the Premier League, fans and players will be hoping that this is the start of something monumental for the club in terms of their future progression.
Nevertheless, after letting the appointment of their new manager sink in. Nottingham Forest’s Twitter account (@NFFC) took to posting a picture of Karanka’s day at the City Ground.

If you aren't a #nffc fan, Then you won't understand this pic… I can honestly say i have never seen another manager in the last 20 odd years embrace the past, and be surrounded by such legends for the press before.
