Nottingham Forest fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with Slavisa Jokanovic.

Forest are on the hunt for a new manager following the departure of Aitor Karanka last week.

According to The Sun, former Fulham and Watford boss Jokanovic is the number one managerial target for the Reds.


The 50-year-old former Tenerife defensive midfielder is without a managerial job at the moment, having parted company with Premier League club Fulham in November 2018.

Jokanovic knows the Championship inside out and has a strong record in the division, having guided Watford and Fulham to promotion to the Premier League.

Forest fans on Twitter seem to want Jokanovic to take over at the City Ground, as the following comments show.

The Reds are still very much in the running for the playoffs this season, and a good and experienced manager could see them end up in the top six of the Championship.
