Nottingham Forest have a new director of football: the former Olympiakos chief Kyriakos Dourekas.

Nottingham Forest have announced a big change to their structure behind the scenes this week. The Championship promotion chasers have announced a new director of football, hiring Kyriakos Dourekas.

Dourekas arrives at the City Ground on the back of a hugely successful 25-year stint at Olympiakos, helping the Greek Superleague outfit win 19 league championships.

And the Nottingham Post suggests that Dourekas could aid Forest during the January transfer window with his wide-ranging connections a possible benefit to a club on the up under Evangelos Marinakis, a man the experienced director knows well.

But it seems that Forest fans have one or two concerns.

Manager Aitor Karanka admitted that he felt a little ‘flat’ last week despite the 2-0 win against Ipswich Town last Saturday, as reported by The Post, and supporters are concerned that the arrival of Dourekas will see he and the manager butting heads.

If the new man has a say over transfer policy, which often falls within the remit of a director of football, how will this go down with Karanka?
