“I think “: Gary Lineker shares his verdict about the 46-year-old manager Nottingham Forest ‘dream’ of appointing amid speculations on Steve Cooper…

Gary Lineker has expressed high praise for Marco Silva, who is linked with Nottingham Forest as a potential replacement for current head coach Steve Cooper. The speculation surrounding Cooper’s future heightened after a 5-0 defeat against Silva’s Fulham, but Forest managed to bounce back with a commendable draw against Wolves.

Nottingham Forest’s owner, Evangelos Marinakis, has been rumored to have a keen interest in appointing Silva, with a reported desire stemming from their past collaboration at Olympiacos. On The Rest is Football podcast, Lineker and Alan Shearer commended Fulham’s recent performances, particularly noting the impressive 5-0 victories over Forest and West Ham.

While discussing Fulham’s success, Shearer highlighted the team’s performance, saying, “What about Fulham, eh, five goals against Forest and another five on Sunday.” Lineker, in turn, shifted the focus to Silva, stating, “I think the manager deserves huge credit as well for those results.”

Silva, at 46 years old, has achieved notable success at Fulham, guiding them to promotion in his debut season and overseeing a 10th-place finish in the Premier League in the 2022/23 campaign. Despite Silva signing a new contract, uncertainties remain about the inclusion of a release clause in his deal with Fulham.

While Forest continues to support Cooper for now, speculations about potential alternatives, including Silva, have surfaced, reflecting the complex dynamics of modern football. If the decision is made to part ways with Cooper, Silva is viewed as an excellent candidate for the role. His familiarity with the league, coaching prowess, and potential financial backing from Marinakis make him an appealing option for Nottingham Forest.
