Sky journalist: Two-time CL winner makes decision on Nottingham Forest job

By Amir Mir

The search for a new Nottingham Forest manager will not end with Ryan Giggs getting the job, according to a reliable journalist.

There have been reports linking the Manchester United legend with the vacant post at the City Ground.

But Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol has claimed on his personal Twitter account that Giggs is not interested in taking over the relegation-threatened outfit.

The struggling Championship club sacked manager Phillipe Montanier on Saturday after their 0-0 draw with Birmingham City.

Two-time Champions League winner Giggs has not managed a club on a permanent basis but has held assistant roles at Old Trafford, including two seasons as the right-hand man of Louis van Gaal.

It seems the Welshman will not take up a new role as the Midlands club aim to stay in the Championship.

Forest are currently three points and two places above the drop zone after a potential takeover by an American consortium collapsed on Friday.

Football Insider verdict:

Nottingham Forest fans should be pleased that Ryan Giggs is not interested in the managerial post because he is not the person required for the current job in hand. Forest need an experienced manager who understands the Championship, someone who has been in relegation battles and can manage players. The current situation at the club seems to be worse off the pitch than on it but a structure can be put in place on the pitch to ensure they survive relegation this season. Not only that, appointing managers such as Nigel Pearson or Gary Rowett will bring some calmness to the club and belief to its worried supporters. Despite his last job being at rivals Derby, Pearson has the man management skills and experience to help Forest in the short-term at least.
