Nuno ‘hasn’t been easy’ as Nottingham Forest grapple with new uncertainty

Not even 24 hours had passed since the full-time whistle at Burnley before talk emerged of Nuno Espirito Santo’s future at Nottingham Forest.

The dust had barely settled on the season. The Portuguese would hardly have had time to down the beers he promised himself would mark the Reds over the line.

Supporters had chanted Nuno’s name at Turf Moor as survival was mathematically assured. He had been pushed by Morgan Gibbs-White and Anthony Elanga in front of the away side to receive some of the plaudits.

However, on Monday morning, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano posted on social media that “there is a chance” Nuno could leave the City Ground. German newspaper Bild (via Sport Witness ) have since linked the 50-year-old with Bayern Munich’s vacant managerial job, while Forest are rumored to be looking at former Brighton and Hove Albion boss Roberto De Zerbi , they rioted.

It comes after Nuno left a cryptic comment about his future last Friday. Asked if he hoped to be part of Evangelos Marinakis’ grand vision for the club, he simply said: “I’m here now.”

As with some of his predecessors, Nuno can be expected to meet with Marinakis to pick over the season that just passed and discuss what lies ahead. The owner will want to develop next term – after all, that should have been the goal this time. The prospect of another relegation battle is unlikely to cut it.
