Chris Hughton sacked – Announced on Thursday morning
News on Thursday morning that Chris Hughton has lost his job.
At 9am Nottingham Forest released a statement (see below) saying the former Newcastle United manager had been sacked.
Chris Hughton took over at Forest on 6 October 2020 with the club rock bottom of the Championship with zero points, eventually guiding them to safety in 17th place.
This season, the one-time NUFC boss has had a dismal time and he leaves Nottingham Forest today with the club once again rock bottom, with only one point.
They have lost six of seven league matches, with only a draw at local rivals Derby giving them their only point.
The final straw was Wednesday night, as Forest lost 2-0 at home to Middlesbrough.
Sad to see it hasn’t worked out for Chris Hughton in this latest job, best of luck to him wherever he ends up next.
