Awoniyi, Aina To Get New Manager Following Steve Cooper’s Exit

Awoniyi, Aina To Get New Manager Following Steve Cooper's Exit 2

Super Eagles duo of Taiwo Awoniyi and Ola Aina will work with a new manager going into the new year following the sack of Steve Cooper.

The Welsh manager was sacked on Tuesday following a poor run of results which has seen Nottingham Forest drop to 17th on the English Premier League table.

Nottingham Forest have only managed two wins in its last 14 league matches. The most recent defeat came in a 2 nil home loss to Tottenham last Friday.

“Everyone at Nottingham Forest would like to thank Steve for his superb contribution to our football club. His achievement in guiding Forest back to the Premier League will undoubtedly remain an iconic moment in the Club’s history.”


“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 endeavours,” owner Evangelos Marinakis said.

Steve Cooper helped the Tricky Trees secure promotion back to the Premier League after wining the Championship playoffs in 2022. And he also helped the club aviod the drop last season.

Nuno Espirito Santo, the former Tottenham and Wolverhampton Wanderers manager is expected to take charge at the City Ground in the days ahead.
