Gary Brazil to remain in charge of Nottingham Forest

by Jack Kitson / 10 February 2017, 09:35

After a fruitless month spent searching for new manager Nottingham Forest have instead opted to stick in-house after revealing that caretaker boss Gary Brazil will remain in charge until the end of the season.

Forest axed Philippe Montanier in mid-January following a goalless draw with Birmingham City, which left the club a worrying three points above the relegation zone.

The Reds have since been linked with a multitude of managers, including Gary Rowett, Nigel Clough, Billy Davies, Paul Heckingbottom, and Kenny Jackett, but have had no luck in luring anyone to the City Ground.

With Fawaz Al-Hasawi as owner you can see why.

But, in the end the controversial Kuwaiti businessman has opted to stick with Brazil in the dugout. 

And, while they may have missed out on their man targets, it's fair to say that Brazil has flourished so far, leading his troops to three wins in four, which has catapulted Forest up to 15th - eight points clear of the drop zone.

Up next for Brazil is a tricky trip to Alex Neil's rejuvenated Norwich, who after a tough spell, have now accumulated 10 points from their last four games, which has propelled them back into play-off contention.
