Nottingham Forest star Matty Cash has told TalkSport (14/07; 11:15am) that Sabri Lamouchi is the best manager he has worked for.

The rising Reds star is on course to collect the club’s Player of the Year title for his efforts this season.

He has been reborn as a right-back under Lamouchi and has featured in 41 of Forest’s 43 Championship fixtures.

Cash believes the boss deserves immense praise for what he has achieved so far this season.

He told TalkSport: “He’s brilliant. The gaffer still joins in during training every day and since he came in he’s been class to be fair.

“Everything about him has been really good and the staff he’s added have been fantastic too.

“His little speeches before the game get everyone really fired up and it makes you really want to play for him. He’s definitely the best manager I’ve played under.”

The 22-year-old has played 140 times for the Reds having come through the youth academy at the City Ground.

He was linked with a move to West Ham during the January transfer window, with Forest reportedly valuing Cash at £12 million (Guardian).

That fee will probably not be enough for anyone wanting to sign Cash in the summer; with the player continuing his impressive form into the second half of the campaign.


Lamouchi arrived at the club just over a year ago and his impact on the team has been telling.

Forest are fifth in the league and can confirm their play-off place with three points over Swansea City tomorrow.


The Frenchman has overseen some brilliant results this season, with Forest one of the most successful teams in the league away from the City Ground.

Lamouchi, 48, looks to have settled into the Reds hot seat and regardless of what happens this season, the future looks bright for Forest.

Cash missed the trip to Preston at the weekend but might return against Steve Cooper’s team tomorrow.
