Nottingham Forest keeping former Sheffield Wednesday man on radar as they seek Karanka replacement



Nottingham Forest will be looking to appoint a new manager in the coming week following the departure of Aitor Karanka yesterday.

The Spaniard saw his deal with the Reds ended by mutual termination, and the Championship side are now looking for a replacement, with former Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic being touted to replace Karanka if the Reds can get their man.

However, the Reds are also keeping tabs on other options, and according to the Birmingham Mail, former Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal is also being considered by officials at the City Ground.

Carvalhal has been out of work in England since leaving Swansea, but has excellent pedigree in the Championship after he led Wednesday to the play-offs in his opening two seasons at Hillsborough.

He left the Owls to move to then Premier League strugglers Swansea, but failed to keep the club in the top flight and subsequently lost his job once again in Wales.

Forest are just outside the play-off places at the moment and will be keen to resolve their managerial issues as quick as possible, and Reds fans will no doubt be intrigued to see two more foreign names once again being linked with their club in Carvalhal and Jokanovic.

The Verdict

I’m not sure Carvalhal is the man to take Forest forward to be honest.

He did very well at Sheffield Wednesday initially but then saw things fall apart somewhat, and the Reds job is a tough one to take on.

Jokanovic would make more sense and appease fans. You get the impression that Carvalhal would be up against it from the off if he does take over the club.
