Nottingham Forest’s new American takeover bidders reportedly want Brad Friedel as their new director of football, according to the Sun.
John Jay Moores, the head of an American consortium is expected to take over the club in a deal worth £50 million, and wants his fellow countryman and former Tottenham, Liverpool and Aston Villa goalkeeper to be the Reds’ director of football, due to his experience in the English league.
This comes after former director of football Pedro Pereira’s departure, with unpopular owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi putting the club up for sale after some torrid decisions.
Friedel, now 45 years of age, has even been to Nottingham recently to check the Midlands side’s facilities, and could be tempted by a more senior director role, despite being the head coach of the United States’ Under-19’s side since January 2016.
So…What do you think Forest fans? Is this is a wise first move by Moores? Do you think Fawaz Al-Hasawi selling the club is the right idea? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
