Chris Wilder wants to become next Nottingham Forest manager


Chris Wilder is reportedly keen to become the next manager at Nottingham Forest, despite earlier rumours suggesting that he is not interested in a club at the bottom of the second tier.  

According to Nottinghamshire Live, the former Sheffield United boss hasn’t talked with the Forest hierarchy yet, but he is interested to take the vacant post at the City Ground. 

Yesterday saw Chris Hughton resign from the Reds, with the Championship side ranked rock bottom in the league table following seven defeats. 

Steve Cooper is the current favourite to become the next manager of West Bridgford. 

The Welsh football expert has a record of developing young talent, plus he also guided Swansea City to the playoffs twice before leaving the club by mutual consent earlier this summer.

Nottingham Forest are in massive trouble at the moment and they need a manager who has experience dealing with such situations. 

Chris Wilder does have a reputation of improving teams in trouble, having successfully led relegation-threatened Northampton Town to League 2 mid-table finish in 2014-15. 

He took over Sheffield United in 2016 when they were in League One. Although the team started badly, the 53-year old led his team to the league title, scoring a club-record 100 goals. 

The Blades made it to the Premier League in 2019 after the English boss guided them to a second-placed finish in the second tier. 

Wilder looks perfect for the job at Nottingham Forest.
