The Football League Paper - - INSIDE: - By Ross Law­son

NIGEL CLOUGH is con­sid­er­ing his op­tions af­ter Not­ting­ham For­est ap­proached Bur­ton Al­bion about their va­cant man­ager’s role.

Clough played more than 300 games and scored 131 goals for For­est, who were fa­mously man­aged by his fa­ther, Brian.

He is in his sec­ond spell as Brew­ers boss, but For­est are look­ing for some­one to fill their man­age­rial va­cancy af­ter sack­ing Philippe Mon­tanier ear­lier this month.

It is un­der­stood Clough is tak­ing his time to con­sider his fu­ture over the week­end.

The 50-year-old is un­sure what ex­actly the fu­ture will hold but ad­mits he fully un­der­stands peo­ple con­nect­ing him with the job at For­est.

“I don’t think you can ever pre­dict what’s go­ing to hap­pen in foot­ball,” said Clough.

“All these sort of al­le­giances you have and ev­ery­thing, yeah they’re strong, but in foot­ball peo­ple go to ri­vals all the time.

“It’s very dif­fi­cult when you spent 18 years – I’m just over 50 years old – so a third of my life in­volved with a cer­tain club (Not­ting­ham For­est).

“I’ve spent 11 with this one as well, but of course it’s an easy link and a log­i­cal one from lots of points of view.”
