AFC Wimbledon

Nottingham Forest individual in contention for vacant EFL role

Steven Reid is said to be in the frame to become the new manager of AFC Wimbledon, according to the South London Press.

Reid is currently on the coaching staff at Nottingham Forest, after Chris Hughton replaced Sabri Lamouchi at the helm back in October.

Reid, alongside, Paul Trollope, is one of Hughton’s right-hand men, and has been tasked with keeping Forest up this season.

Reid is also part of the backroom staff alongside Steve Clarke at Scotland, and has also previously coached at Reading, West Brom and Crystal Palace.

The 39-year-old did in fact coach at Wimbledon for a brief moment in time back in 2018, and a return to the club could now be on the cards.

South London Press’ Rich Cawley has revealed that Reid is “in the frame” to become AFC Wimbledon boss, after Glyn Hodges was sacked earlier this week.

Danny Cowley is also said to be a contender for the job at Plough Lane, as Wimbledon look to recover and start climbing the table.

The Verdict

Reid has held numerous coaching roles elsewhere, but you wonder whether he’s now ready to take up a managerial role.

He has worked under some really experienced managers, and taking over a League One club could be the right move for him at this moment in time.

It would be a bit of a blow for Hughton and for Forest, as Reid seems to have a good relationship with the players.
