McCarthy Is Latest Favourite To Land Forest Job
Bookmakers Ladbrokes, have made Mick McCarthy the odds on favourite to become the new manager at Nottingham Forest.
The Reds' have been in search of a new manager since the sacking of Steve Cotterill last Thursday. Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson was the early front runner in the race, with Glenn Hoddle also seeing plenty of cash being placed on him too. Hoddle has since been ruled out by the new owners.
One of the three new owners, Abdulaziz Al-Hasawi said at a press conference yesterday."We are talking to several main iconic names that have a very clear understanding of this league. We are looking for the best in the business. We have to secure this within the next three or four days because we have to get started."
Other names in the frame are Alex McLeish, Gordon Strachan and Harry Redknapp. Money is also being placed on former player Roy Keane and fans favourite Billy Davies.
McCarthy would be seen as someone who fits the bill, in terms of what the new owners are looking for. He has a proven track record in the Championship and had a fairly successful time with Wolves in the Premiership.
