Manager Profile

Left Post:





Dougie Freedman is the manager of Championship outfit Nottingham Forest, replacing the sacked Stuart Pearce in February 2015. Freedman enjoyed a superb start to life at the City Ground, but a poor end to the season saw the club miss out on the play-offs by some distance (14th).

Freedman came under heavy pressure after a bad start to the 2015/16 season, however after some positive results in the lead up to December, Freedman's position stabilised, and he went on to lead Forest to a 13 game unbeaten run, which only ended in late January. But, despite this he lost his job in March (2016), meaning he lasted just under a year at the helm.

Freedman has also previously managed Bolton and Crystal Palace.

Dougie Freedman Quotes

I can give you a fantastic quote that would give you a headline, saying that we can do it, if you like.. but i am an honest guy and i think they (the playoffs) are a little bit far away for us.

Motivation comes from within. I want the players to come in on Monday morning and show me that they want to learn. It is their career and there is no point worrying about tomorrow, you have to worry about what you are doing today.

I am going to make sure we try to win games of football, I am going to make sure that we play the players who will help us to do that.
