Leeds United boss Steve Evans remains the favourite to become Nottingham Forest’s next manager, despite denials from the Midlands club that he will get the job.
The Yorkshire Evening Post reported that Forest had completely ruled out Evans’ chances of getting the job at the City Ground, with supporters up in arms about his potential appointment.
However, the bookies’ still seem to think that the 53-year-old could take over with the Reds.
Evans is the 7/4 favourite to get the job at Forest, with plenty of other names also tipped to be in with a chance. Here’s some of the the other most likely candidates to take charge at Forest, according to the bookies (all prices listed are via Sky Bet).
Michel - 3/1: The former Real Madrid midfielder is the second favourite to become Forest’s next boss.
Reports in Greece last week suggested that Michel could take over at the City Ground, but his appointment would be a left-field one.
Nigel Clough - 3/1: Clough has obvious connections with Forest, and he has done a wonderful job to guide Burton Albion into the second tier.
When quizzed on whether he would be interested in the Forest job earlier in the season, Clough was very coy with his response, but the Nottingham Post have reported that he is not on the Reds’ wishlist, despite his short odds.
Neil Warnock - 18/1: Warnock is the latest manager to have been linked with Forest, with the Nottingham Post suggesting that he is a potential target. He remains an outsider, though.
Oscar Garcia (5/1), Martin O’Neill (6/1), Gianfranco Zola (8/1) and Nigel Pearson (12/1) have also been linked.
