Alex McLeish And Nottingham Forest Part Waysby Jack Kitson / 05 February 2013, 11:23
Alex McLeish has left Nottingham Forest today (Tuesday) after just over five weeks in charge. Speculation over McLeish's future at the City Ground erupted last week following reports of a disagreement between the Scot and the club's Kuwaiti owners over transfer funds. The former Birmingham and Aston Villa boss was believed to be bitterly disappointed at missing out on Peterborough player George Boyd after the Al-Hasawi family pulled out of a deal due to an inconclusive eye test.
McLeish was appointed Forest manager on 27th December 2012 following the shock sacking of Sean O'Driscoll. In total he won just one of his seven games in charge of the club, which was a 2-1 victory at home to Peterborough. His last match in the dugout was a 2-1 defeat to Birmingham last weekend.
Forest will now begin to search for their fifth manager since Billy Davies was sacked back in June 2011. The club are without question in turmoil at the moment, with the latest decision likely to further infuriate supports. At the moment former player Roy Keane and ex boss Billy Davies are being touted as possible successors, although the latter is currently the hot favourite for the Blackpool Job.
