Nottingham Forest boss Chris Hughton finds himself under huge pressure amid poor results – and now rumours about John Terry’s interest in the job.
Hughton saw his Forest side lose 2-1 to Cardiff City on Sunday. Lewis Grabban gave Forest the lead, but two Rubin Colwill clinched a win for Cardiff.
That’s now one point from six league games to start the season, and Forest are rooted to the bottom of the table.
Hughton is in real danger of losing his job at Forest – and Terry has emerged as a possible replacement.
Terry back to the City Ground?
Terry had a loan spell at Forest in 2000, with that stint playing a role in his development at Chelsea.
A celebrated captain at Stamford Bridge, Terry has turned his hand to coaching.
Terry worked on Dean Smith’s staff at Aston Villa, but left that post over the summer.
The belief is that Terry wants to be a manager now, and Forest is appealing to him.
Going for a 40-year-old coach with no managerial experience is something of a gamble, and Forest fans seem split.
Forest fans on Terry
There appears to be a real divide in the Forest fanbase, with a mix of opinions on Terry.
Some think that Terry would be a huge risk, and appointing a rookie boss would simply lead Forest to League One.
Others believe that Terry is the exact kind of character that Forest need, and he could be like Frank Lampard in terms of a promising manager with great connections in the loan market.
