Former France international Robert Pires has said that Sabri Lamouchi is content at Nottingham Forest.
The current Reds boss is coming up to his one-year anniversary with the club after replacing former manager Martin O’Neill in June 2019 just 18 minutes after the Irishman was sacked (via BBC Sport).
Pires, a former teammate of Lamouchi, recently spoke about his own managerial career, admitting that he isn’t sure where he’ll end up. “You can’t know where you’ll go as a manager,” the Frenchman told Vosges Matin (via Sport Witness). “I’ll give the example of Sabri Lamouchi, who’s very happy at Nottingham Forest.”
Will Nottingham Forest be promoted this season?
The Reds will resume their Championship season fifth in the table, with a place in the play-offs very much in reach. Forest have won 16 games so far this term and have accumulated 60 points, putting them just behind Brentford on goal difference (as per TransferMarkt).
If Lamouchi can lead his side to the play-offs, it will be the first time in nine years that the club have fought for a spot in the Premier League. Bagging the third promotion spot is a strong possibility for this good-looking Forest side, and if they succeed it will be a long-awaited return into the top flight, in which they last played way back in 1999.
How would you rate Lamouchi’s influence on the team so far, Forest fans? Have your say in the comments below…
