Glenn Hoddle And Darren Ferguson Back In Forest Frame

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 17 July 2012, 09:38

Glenn Hoddle and Darren Ferguson are back in the running for the Nottingham Forest vacancy after hot favourite Mick McCarthy pulled out of contention. On Monday the former Wolves manager cut short his holiday to meet with the Al Hasawi family for face-to-face talks but has reportedly turned down the chance to manage the East Midlands club following in-depth discussions about the job.

With the 2012/13 Championship season now just one month away the new owners are understandably eager to make an appointment as soon as possible. The fight for the Forest job now looks to be a two-horse race between Hoddle and Ferguson, who were both the original favourites in the Next Nottingham Forest Manager Odds.

Reports indicate that the Al Hasawi family have already been in contact with the out-of-work Hoddle, although neither party has confirmed these rumours. Meanwhile obtaining the services of Peterborough boss Ferguson would require Forest to pay a compensation fee of £1.5million, which shouldn’t be a problem for the wealthy owners.

Gordon Strachan, Roy Keane and Billy Davies all remain outsiders for the job. All three managers are currently out-of-work and are believed to be keen for a return to the dugout. Davies previously managed Forest between 2008 and 2011, while Keane played for the club early on in his career.
