Nottingham Forest has officially parted ways with manager Steve Cooper amid a series of disappointing performances, including five losses in their last six games.


Cooper, 44, played a crucial role in guiding Nottingham Forest to Premier League promotion in 2022, ending a 23-year absence from the top flight in his first coaching season with the team. Owner Evangelos Marinakis acknowledged Cooper’s historic achievement.


“His accomplishment in steering Forest back will undoubtedly remain an iconic moment in the club’s history.”

Marinakis expressed gratitude for Cooper’s contributions to the club.

“We thank Steve for his dedication and commitment during his time with us, as well as the incredible connection he forged with our supporters and the city of Nottingham. Steve will always remain a friend of the club and will forever be welcome at the City Ground. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Recent Struggles and Decision
Cooper, still a beloved figure among fans, received news of his departure on Tuesday. Nottingham Forest, currently 17th in the Premier League, has faced a challenging period, securing only one victory in their last 13 top-flight games and accumulating eight points during that stretch. The team has earned just one point from their last six matches, putting them five points ahead of third-from-bottom Luton, who have a match in hand.

Cooper’s final game in charge concluded with a 2-0 home defeat by Tottenham last Friday, marking the end of his tenure with the club.

Talks with Nuno Espirito Santo
As Nottingham Forest seeks a new leader, former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is reportedly in discussions to assume the managerial position. The club is hopeful that Santo can bring a fresh perspective and success to the team.

The departure of Steve Cooper marks a significant chapter in Nottingham Forest’s recent history, and the potential appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo adds anticipation to the club’s future direction.
