Sabri Lamouchi named new manager of Nottingham Forest

Sabri Lamouchi has been named new manager of Nottingham Forest.

Lamouchi has been appointed as the new boss of Nottingham Forest, just 18 minutes after the club announcing the departure of Martin O'Neill.

Forest released a statement on Friday lunchtime to say the 67-year-old O'Neill was leaving his post at the City Ground after just five months in charge. It was only 37 words long.

Moments later, another appeared welcoming former Rennes boss Lamouchi.

Lamouchi took Rennes into the Europa League last season where they were knocked out by Arsenal.

However, Lamouchi wasn't about to witness it, having been sacked in December 2018 following a string of bad results.
