‘Excellent appointment’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans react as big manager news emerges

Published

Steve Cooper has been officially named as Nottingham Forest’s new Head Coach.

The Reds have moved quickly to find a successor to Chris Hughton, who was sacked last week following a poor start to the season.

Dane Murphy has made his first managerial appointment as CEO of the club, bringing in his number one target in Cooper.

Cooper made a name for himself in management in the England youth setup, guiding the Under-17s’ to FIFA World Cup success in 2017.

The 41-year-old – who worked with the likes of Phil Foden, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Rhian Brewster in that time – then moved into club football with Swansea City.

In his two seasons at the Liberty Stadium, Cooper guided the Swans to back-to-back play-off finishes, reaching the semi-finals in 2019/20 and reaching the final last season.

With a new regime looking to embed a new philosophy of producing a younger squad at the City Ground, Cooper seems like an ideal fit.
