Mick McCarthy Favourite For Forest Job

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 16 July 2012, 09:47

Mick McCarthy is the latest manager to be strongly linked with Nottingham Forest as he emerges as the odds-on favourite for the vacancy. The former Wolves boss is racing home from holiday in order to meet face-to-face with the club’s new owners, the Al-Hasawi family, who are eager to appoint a manager as soon as possible. Previous favourites’ Darren Ferguson and Glenn Hoddle have seen their odds lengthened in the Next Nottingham Forest Manager market, and it now appears that the job is McCarthy’s to lose.

The Kuwaiti family took over last Thursday and immediately stamped their mark by dismissing Steve Cotterill. The new owners are now expected to interview a handful of managers early this week, with Darren Ferguson, Roy Keane and Gordon Strachan rumoured to be in the mix. They are looking for a man with character and experience who can get the East Midlands club back in the big time. McCarthy, who has been out of work since February, has a proven record in the Championship, winning the title on two occasions, with Sunderland and Wolves.

The new manager will receive strong financial backing from the Al-Hasawi family as they look to build together a squad that is capable of pushing for promotion. Paddy Power currently have Forest available at 9/2 to make this dream and reality and make their long awaited return to the top flight, while they are also priced at 12/1 to go all the way and win the Championship.
