Former Blackburn Rovers and MK Dons boss Paul Ince has publically declared his interest in taking over the reins at the City Ground, joining the likes of Karl Robinson and Martin O’Neil on the ever lengthening list of those linked to the vacant Nottingham Forest hot seat.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, former England international Ince stated: “Forest is a fantastic club so I think anyone would be foolish not to talk to them but last time I saw there were about 50,000 applicants so you never know!
“…they are a fantastic club, fantastic stadium, fantastic fanbase and they’ve got young players who need to be given a bit of motivation and a bit of passion and, you know, that’s part of my game.”
If the Forest board were to appoint Ince, it would be the ex midfielder’s first foray into management since leaving local rivals Notts County in April. It would also give Ince the opportunity to reignite a stalling career in management, with promising early spells in charge of Macclesfield and MK Dons giving way to disappointing recent periods at Blackburn and County respectively.
