Nottingham Forest officials have held talks with former Wolves and Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo about the possibility of taking over at the City Ground, with Steve Cooper’s future looking increasingly bleak.

Forest have won just one of their last 13 matches, and Sky Sports News has been told the relationship between Cooper and owner Evangelos Marinakis has deteriorated to the point where it is now “difficult”.

The Greek businessman is aware of the fans’ affection for Cooper, who returned Forest to the Premier League for the first time in 23 years. But it is understood he has concerns Cooper might be tiring of the project and fresh ideas are needed.

  1. But Nuno lost his job at Wolves when they lost their main striker and couldn't score goals, sound familiar? Give Cooper more time to bring in a new striker and GK

  2. What a disgrace,leaking to the media while the present coach is still in charge is not the way to show respect.
    I don't think Steve Cooper will be out of work for very long and if this happens Forest could well end up regretting it.

  3. Steve Cooper is a better coach than Forest are a team, this has the potential to turn out disastrous for them as a club. Let's not forget it wasn't only Spurs than Nuno was hounded out of, the Wolves fans had seen more than enough by the time he left there too.

    Sometimes you have to wonder what these owners are thinking when they make rash decisions with their clubs in pretty stable positions. Everton did it for years and it very nearly cost them, we've seen Leeds and Burnley panic and go down in recent years too, I think if Cooper goes Forest go down personally and it'd be a shame because they're a club with a lot of history and it took them so long to come back last time.

  4. thing is with nuno if he plays a back 4 its awful but when he plays a back 5 u get massive sucsess he would do good at forest with old player willy bolly at the back n gibbs white they would do amazin with nuno if they play a back 5

  5. Send love to Steve Cooper and family was looking forward to coming to watch Blackpool fc vs Nottingham forest at the city ground if Blackpool beat forest Green rovers in fa cup to set up a big game against forest we beaten them last year in the same round 3 but should be even easier to beat now Steve Cooper has been sacked forest deserve to be relegated as they wouldn't be a prem team if it wasn't for Steve Cooper and his love for the club nuno isn't the right manager at all for forest but you will learn by the mistakes your owner makes

  6. Now we have to be respectful in regards to the manager's position as Steve Cooper is still in charge but for now lets spend over seven minutes gossiping about how he could be sacked and who the next guy is 😂. Media is terrible sometimes

  7. Should try to get Graham Potter in the door, not Santo.. Santo is no better or worse than Cooper, Steve Cooper has done a great job with Forest from the bottom of championship to be a good competitive team in premier league, he is never going to win every game but he made them competitive and been unlucky in a few games this season, I guess it's not the best when you are not winning, but there is a few worse clubs that will go down and stop forest entering the relegation…
