Steve Sheppard from the Nottingham Forest supporters club has been speaking to ITV News Central about the club's appointment of Philippe Montanier as Head Coach.
He believes it was a good decision:
Nottingham Forest have confirmed the appointment of Philippe Montanier as the club’s head coach.
The former Rennes and Real Sociedad manager arrives at The City Ground on a two-year deal following a playing career which saw him make over 300 appearances for clubs including Toulouse, Nantes and Saint-Etienne.
Nottingham Forest have appointed Pedro Pereira as the club’s new director of football.
Mr Pereira is a football professional with extensive experience in scouting and development.
He has previously spent 13 years at Portuguese side Sporting Braga.
It is a big honour and at the same time a great challenge to work with such a historical and important club as Nottingham Forest and I want to sincerely thank the Chairman for offering this opportunity to me.
I respect deeply the history of the club but we have to look ahead and create the background for a new chapter of success, stability and victories. Nottingham Forest has huge potential and I believe and hope I can contribute significantly in bringing the club back to the Premier League.
Our focus is to prepare the team for the coming season and to fulfil our ambitions. We need the support of all Nottingham Forest fans to achieve our goals.
