Nottingham Forest has hired ex-Tottenham coach Nuno Espirito Santo to take on the role of manager.


Struggling in the Premier League, Nottingham Forest has appointed Nuno Espirito Santo, the former manager of Wolves and Tottenham, as their new head coach.

The Portuguese coach steps in for Steve Cooper, who was dismissed on Tuesday after Forest managed just one victory in 13 matches, leaving them in 17th place, a mere five points above the relegation zone. Nuno has inked a two-and-a-half-year contract at the City Ground, extending his tenure until the summer of 2026.

This marks Nuno’s return to managerial responsibilities since his departure from Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad in November. Prior to that, the 49-year-old Portuguese tactician achieved success by guiding Wolves from the Championship to the Europa League in a four-year span between 2017 and 2021, followed by a brief but challenging three-month stint at Tottenham after leaving Wolves.

Nuno will lead his first training session on Wednesday morning and is set to make his managerial debut in the City Ground dugout during Saturday’s match against Bournemouth at 3 pm.
