Ex-Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi has emerged as a candidate to replace Mark Hudson as the new Cardiff City boss.

According to BBC Sport, the former Reds incumbent is now in the frame to take on a second job in the second tier of English football.

Lamouchi spent just over a season at Forest, managing the club for the entire 2019/20 campaign and four games of the following campaign.

In the eyes of supporters, Lamouchi made supporting Forest enjoyable again, although his time at the City Ground will be remembered for the wrong reasons.

In 2019/20, Forest capitulated. They helped a position in the top six from Christmas until the final day before dropping out in heartbreaking style.

The Reds stuck by the Frenchman for the 2020/21 campaign but just four games in, Forest had lost every game.

Since leaving the Reds, Lamouchi has only held a position with Qatari outfit Al-Duhail.

Now, he’s keen to get back into the hot seat, with Cardiff keen to appoint him as their new manager.

Lamouchi left Forest with a 36% win ratio and has also managed Ivory Coast, El Jaish and Rennes.

This would be a decent move by Cardiff if they can get Lamouchi over the line as their new boss.

Forest was somewhat broken, with the fan base divided, when the manager arrived at the City Ground.

Within a matter of months, he’d united the fan base and got everyone singing from the same hymn sheet.

Lamouchi’s style is hardly the most eye-catching style of play but ultimately, his pragmatic approach can work in the Championship.

If Cardiff do get Lamouchi as their new manager, Forest fans will be monitoring their progress with certain intrigue.

It would be a big job for the ex-Reds manager and going in with the club near the foot of the Championship would represent a challenge.
