Former NUFC boss sacked after 6 defeats in opening 7 games – Club statement

Former Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton has been sacked by Nottingham Forest.

After a horrendous start to the season – seeing them pick up just ONE point so far – they currently sit rock bottom of the Championship.

Last night’s 0-2 defeat at home to Middlesbrough appears to have been the final straw for Forest chiefs, with it leaving them with one draw and SIX defeats in their opening seven games of the new 2021/22 season.

Hughton took over back in October last year when they were bottom of the second tier on zero points, eventually helping them stay up with a 17th place finish.

However, after another dismal start to the season, a club statement has confirmed that he’s been sacked this morning:

Nottingham Forest Official Statement:

‘Nottingham Forest can confirm that Chris Hughton has been relieved of his duties as first team manager.

The club would like to place on record its’ appreciation for Chris’s efforts. Chris joined the club in a difficult period for everyone in football and around the world and we thank him for the way he has conducted himself during his tenure.

Steven Reid will take temporary charge of the first team as interim head coach.

The search for the permanent successor has begun and the club will update supporters in due course.

The club would like to wish Chris all the best in his future career.’

  1. Ahhhh, remember all those years ago when Hughton was sacked by Newcastle because management didn’t think he had what was required in the Premier League?
    Then he was sacked by Norwich because they didn’t think he had what was required for the Premier League.
    Then he was sacked by Brighton because they didn’t think he had what was required for the Premier League.
    Now he’s been sacked by Forrest because they don’t think he has what is required for the Championship.
    Looks like Newcastle were right.
    Now let’s just sit back and wait for the stream of angry fans shouting “I’ll take Hughton over Bruce, any day!”
