Steve Cooper will remain Nottingham Forest manager

Nottingham Forest owner, Evangelos Marinakis, has backed Steve Cooper to stay in charge of Nottingham Forest.

Forest are not in the relegation zone only on goal difference, not winning any of their last eight matches.

The team suffered a damaging defeat to their relegation rivals Leeds on Tuesday, increasing speculation over the future of manager Mark Cooper. However, owner Evangelos Marinakis has backed his manager.

A statement read:

"No one denies that our club is in a difficult position in the Premier League, but we wish to end the speculation and the false and disruptive reporting in the media to confirm that Steve Cooper remains our manager at Nottingham Forest


"We have all been disappointed with recent performances and it is very clear that a lot of hard work needs to be done to address this urgently. Results and performances must improve immediately.

"Now is the time for everyone connected with our club, from us as owners, to the board, our supporters, backroom staff, coaches and players - to come together and fight to secure our status in the Premier League.

"There can be no time for distractions, rumours and speculation. There is only time for hard work, determination, a commitment from Steve and the players to getting the results we need and, of course, the continued magnificent support of the fans of Nottingham Forest."
