CLOUGH PONDERS FOREST CHANCE
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.”
