Crazy Decision - Former Nottingham Forest Star Unhappy With Martin O'Neill Sacking

Martin O'Neill took the reins at Nottingham Forest at the end of January

MARTIN O'NEILL has lost his job at Nottingham Forest after just five months in charge.

The latest developments come just days after assistant Roy Keane, who followed O'Neill to the City Ground following the end of their five-year stint with the Republic of Ireland in November last year, left the club to pursue his ambition of returning to management in his own right.

What will O'Neill's legacy be now after his failure at a club which should have been open to his ability to mention Brian Clough as often as possible and refer to his European Cup medals?

Now, Forest must undergo the procedure of adding a new manager, which will take time and could cost the Championship club in the transfer market and on the training ground.

Former Ivory Coast and Rennes boss Sabri Lamouchi is now in charge at Forest.

"Nottingham Forest can confirm that manager Martin O'Neill has left the club", read the club statement.

Florida dad 'Supermans' over 4-foot pool fence to save drowning son
And among the children ages 1 to 4 who die of unintentional injuries, drowning accounts for one-third of the deaths. A heroic dad was caught on camera doing a Superman-style jump over a fence and into a pool to save his son.

Sabri Lamouchi takes over the Reds hot seat which would have still been warm after O'Neill's exit this lunch time.

The 67-year-old Northern Irishman O'Neill had replaced Spaniard Aitor Karanka and brought in former Forest midfielder Keane to assist him.

Lamouchi also had a distinguished playing career, making over 470 appearances for Monaco, Parma, Inter and Marseille as well as appearing 12 times for the French national team.

Nottingham Forest is an opportunity for him to get back into the game and they will be aiming for the Play-Offs next season.

A statement on the club website confirmed the news.
