McLeish relishing Forest chance

Published Add your comment

Alex McLeish is back in management as boss of npower Championship promotion hopefuls Nottingham Forest.

McLeish had been out of work since being dismissed by Aston Villa in May but is viewed by Forest's Kuwaiti owners as the manager to guide the east midlands club to the Barclays Premier League. The 53-year-old Scot welcomed the opportunity to join a club lying eighth in the Championship, just a point outside the play-offs.

He replaced the sacked Sean O'Driscoll and told club website nottinghamforest.co.uk: "I'm really looking forward to working with Nottingham Forest. I've had time away from the game and now feel refreshed and ready to go."
