Philippe Montanier is a name that many Nottingham Forest fans will have put to the back of their mind after his brief tenure in charge at the City Ground.
The Frenchman was handed the top role on Trentside during the summer of 2016 after taking in previous spells with the likes of Rennes in France and Real Sociedad in Spain.
His time in charge would get off to a good start as he led his side to a 4-3 win over Burton Albion at the City Ground, however things quickly went downhill for the 56-year-old.
A run of two points from a possible 21 and two clean sheets in 30 games led to the Toulouse born boss being given his marching orders in January 2017.

The manager has since gone on to take in stints with the French under-20s side, Lens and Standard Liège.
Montanier is now back in his birth town of Toulouse as manager of Les Violets in Ligue 2.
In his current role he boasts a win percentage of 53.33% and will point to the fact that he almost got his team promoted last season as they finished third after making a concerted effort to get back into the French top flight.
In short the 56-year-old has bounced back well since leaving Forest and his reputation certainly didn’t take too much of a hit after he was dismissed by the Reds nearly five years ago.
