Super Eagles duo, Taiwo Awoniyi currently sidelined by injury and compatriot Ola Aina are awaiting the arrival of new coach to Nottingham forest following the sacking of Steve Cooper on Tuesday.
He played an integral part in Forest’s return to the Premier League, cementing himself firmly into the Club’s rich history after guiding The Reds back into England’s top-flight.
Owner Evangelos Marinakis said: “Everyone at Nottingham Forest would like to thank Steve for his superb contribution to our football club. His achievement in guiding Forest back to the Premier League will undoubtedly remain an iconic moment in the Club’s history.
“We thank Steve for his dedication and commitment during his time with us, as well as the incredible connection he forged with our supporters and the city of Nottingham.
“Steve will always remain a friend of the Club and will forever be welcome at The City Ground. We wish him well in his future endeavours.”
Former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur manager, Nuno Espirito Santo is expected to replace Cooper. All things being equal Espirito Santo will be confirmed for the job on or before Saturday. Nottingham will host Bournemouth on Saturday and will be hoping to earn a win after managing a draw against Wolves last week.
