Exclusive: Ian Holloway reacts to Sabri Lamouchi’s tenure at Nottingham Forest so far



Ian Holloway has heaped praise on the job that Sabri Lamouchi has done at Nottingham Forest so far, with the Midlands based club currently sitting fifth in the Championship. 

Lamouchi arrived at the City Ground this summer as a replacement for the outgoing Martin O’Neill, with the French born manager having previously held roles with the likes of Ligue 1 side Rennes and the Ivory Coast national team.

It is fair to say that the charismatic 48-year-old has completely transformed the way Forest play their football, with his highly expansive attacking brand of football garnering several key results for his new side so far.

He has also managed to get the best out of star striker Lewis Grabban, who has found the net on 10 occasions already this term for the Reds, whilst winger Joe Lolley continues to be another standout performer following on from his stunning form last season.

FLW Journalist Chris Thorpe caught up with Holloway earlier this week to discuss Lamouchi’s tenure so far, with the former QPR manager taking no time at all before praising the 48-year-old’s start to life in the Championship.

“It’s a joy for me to see him doing well, he has untied that club, they haven’t been in the Premier League for a while, so there’s definitely some expectation there to go up this season.

“I hope there will be time for him. 

“There was rumours of him going, and I hope he doesn’t because he is crucial for them. 

“Forest fans are great, there isn’t many clubs that have fans who stand and applaud you off if you have lost an important game.” 

Ian Holloway was speaking at an event organised by The Sackrace, a website which features the latest news and football gossip on the managers at each of the major clubs.
