News emerged this afternoon that Sabri Lamouchi has rejected an advance from Premier League outfit Watford.
L’Equipe have confirmed that the French boss has been approached by the Hornets to replace Quique Sanchez Flores who was dismissed on Sunday.
Lamouchi only arrived in England during the summer. Forest chose him as the man to replace Martin O’Neill who was sacked after just six months in charge.
The Reds have been very impressive under his management. Forest have lost just four of their 18 games under Lamouchi and currently sit fourth in the Championship.
Lots of managers prior to the Frenchman have struggled to cope with the expectation on Trentside but Lamouchi appears different.
Following news of Watford’s interest, Forest fans have taken to Twitter.
The boss only signed a one-year deal when he joined in the summer and supporters want him tied down to a new deal.
It should be taken as a compliment that a Premier League club is interested in Lamouchi, but Forest don’t want to lose their man.
The Reds were beaten by Cardiff on Saturday but fans are genuinely buying into a manager for the first time in what feels like a long time.
Following the news which emerged on Tuesday, we looked at a selection of tweets from Forest supporters who are baying for a new deal for Lamouchi:
Forest need to give Sabri Lamouchi a new improved contract ASAP #nffc

Lamouchi turning down Watford, you love to see it

Wouldn’t surprise me if #NFFC swiftly offered Lamouchi a new deal, if the reports from France are believed to be true. Something that since EM has come in, we’ve done very well in protecting our assests as soon as links start to appear e.g. Lolley & Cash.
