Forest owners want iconic manager - Hoddle, Keane in frame

Nottingham Forest's new owners want an iconic name for their new manager.

The Al-Hasawi family took over at Forest this week and immediately sacked boss Steve Cotterill.

Glenn Hoddle, Mick McCarthy, Darren Ferguson and Roy Keane have all been tipped to replace Cotterill.

And the new owners plan to name a new boss within days.

Abdulaziz Al-Hasawi said: "We are talking to several iconic names that have a very clear understanding of this league. Hopefully that should be resolved soon.

"It will be a long business plan but we're here to reconstruct the club.

"We are going to invest. We are very excited. We have a big challenge. My brother Fawaz and I are very excited about this acquisition and we look forward to a bright start. We have a passion with this country. We were raised and educated here.

"Fawaz has been in the football business for nearly 17 years. It's going to be a challenge but we are looking forward to it."
