Nottingham Forest find themselves without a manager right now after a whirlwind 24 hours or so at the club – even by their standards.
The Reds looked to have finally found a manager in Aitor Karanka that could get them at least challenging the top six and they certainly looked poised to do so in the final months of the season.
With speculation suggesting he was going to go yesterday, though, the former-Boro man has asked today to be released from his contract – and that is exactly what has happened.
The City Ground side will be looking for his replacement, then, and it seems as though they already have one man in mind – Slavisa Jokanovic.
The former Fulham manager took the Craven Cottage side up to the Premier League last season, of course, playing some superb football and Sky Sports reckon he is in the frame:

You have to feel for Karanka but you can understand why he asked to go after the uncertainty circulating around him – he is a strong man of principle.
The Reds must move on, then, and Jokanovic might well be the best person they can get in at this moment in time.
He knows how to get promoted and could work well with some of the talented players at the City Ground.
