Sky Sports deliver MAJOR update on Steve Cooper situation at Nottingham Forest

Sky Sports have now delivered an update on the future of Steve Cooper at Nottingham Forest. The Reds incumbent has come under pressure after a run of one win in 12 matches in the Premier League.

The 44-year-old has come under scrutiny after last week’s 5-0 defeat to Fulham at Craven Cottage. That game was so frustrating for Evangelos Marinakis that he tossed his matchday pass into a bush outside the stadium.

Cooper made seven changes to his starting eleven after the disaster in West London as Forest faced Wolves at the weekend. The Reds did brilliantly well in a 1-1 draw at Molineux and the player fought for their manager.

Sky Sports now deliver Steve Cooper update

Despite earning a stay of execution, according to TalkSPORT, news of his future is going to remain rife. Now, Sky Sports have delivered their own understanding of the situation.

They claimed in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, last night: “Sky Sports News understands Forest are not planning to sack Steev Cooper in the coming days after they earned a battling draw at Wolves on Saturday.”

Forest face Tottenham at the City Ground on Friday as they look to pull clear of the bottom three. Right now there is a five-point gap and Forest will want to make that bigger.

Cooper desperately needs win to secure Forest status

The manager celebrated his birthday the other day and he will have something in mind for a present. He would dearly love to get a big three points on Friday and silence his doubters.

This whole situation has somewhat divided the fan base a little bit. You have the ones who like the Forest links to Julen Lopetegui and then you have the ones who believe Cooper deserves to choose when he leaves the club.

One way or another, Forest need some points. On Sunday, Burnley and Sheffield United both picked up decent results, whilst Luton are also battling in every performance at the moment.

Last season, Cooper probably relied on three teams being worse than Forest but this year things could be different. There is a real chance for the Reds to kick on and one or two good results could change the landscape for Forest – and for Cooper!
