5 contenders to succeed Aitor Karanka at Nottingham Forest
The Spaniard left the City Ground on Friday morning.
Nottingham Forest are looking for a new manager after parting company with Aitor Karanka.
Here, Press Association Sport looks at some of the contenders.
Former Fulham and Watford manager Jokanovic is the bookmakers’ favourite to succeed Karanka. The Serbian led both the Hornets and the Cottagers to promotion but was sacked by Fulham in November.
Sacked by Stoke this week, but Rowett enjoyed success with both Burton and Birmingham before guiding Forest’s rivals Derby to the Sky Bet Championship play-offs last season.
Began his career as a combative midfielder with Forest before enjoying huge success with Manchester United. A mixed CV as a manager, however, and controversy is never far away.
Still to get back into management after keeping West Ham up last season, the former Everton and Manchester United boss would be a safe pair of hands.
