Nottingham Forest news: Huge claim emerges involving Chelsea legend John Terry


Luke Hatfield believes that the Nottingham Forest job would appeal to John Terry.

What's the current situation at Nottingham Forest?

Less than 11 months into his reign with the Reds, Chris Hughton is under serious pressure following Forest's woeful start to the season.

Their defeat at Cardiff on Sunday leaves the City Ground outfit rock bottom of the Championship table having collected just one point from their opening six matches.

Dating back to last season, Forest have now picked up just two points from a possible 19 in the league which has left Hughton's job on the line.

Should he fail to get up and running against Middlesbrough on Wednesday or Huddersfield three days later, he might soon be out of a job.

What has Hatfield said about Terry's chances?



Whilst Hatfield believes that Terry did an excellent job in his first-team coach role at Aston Villa, he raised some concerns about the former Chelsea captain's lack of managerial experience.

He told GIVEMESPORT: "It's a tough call isn't it. We just don't know what John Terry is like as a manager yet. We've seen him as a coach, and he played a massive role in Villa's good performance last season and them staying up in the first one.

"You only need to look at the improvement that Ezri Konsa has made and other defenders at Villa. As a manager, is a team in the bottom reaches of the Championship worth going for him? And would it suit him? It's a massive club. The size of the club will attract him."

Would Terry consider it?

Definitely. Whilst Forest are in an extremely difficult moment, it would be an excellent chance for Terry to get himself into management.

His inexperience might be a concern for the Forest hierarchy, but after Hughton's failed reign, going down the younger route might get the fans back on side – just like his former Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard did at east Midlands rivals Derby.
