Derby County fans have wasted no time boasting about Paul Clement’s arrival as the club’s manager, to rival supporters of Nottingham Forest.
Derby and Nottingham Forest will be two of the teams battling hard for positions in the Championship’s top six next season and it’s difficult to judge between Clement and Forest’s Dougie Freedman, who puts their club in the best position.
Clement would appear to have a more glamorous CV, but Freedman has the experience and knows the Championship well whereas Clement has never been in full control of a team before in his career.
The proof of the pudding is going to be in the immediate results of each team and while Derby can act freely in the transfer market, Freedman has to work hard considering the restrictions applied to his club.
The Scot deserves credit for the hard work he’s already done at the City Ground and one thing is for sure; he won’t back down in the battle against his Championship colleague.
Here’s what Derby fans had to say to their Forest counterparts.
Haha Forest fans are in a proper flap over the Clement appointment. Must be frustrating when you have just given Freedman a 3 year contract— Marv (@Marv_1989) June 1, 2015
@Green_Adz87 you probably are though tbh! I mean I'd rather have clement than freedman! Managers all gotta start somewhere— Adam Walters (@AdamWaltz) June 1, 2015
