Who is Nottingham's manager?

Lyon born manager Sabri Lamouchi has been appointed as manager of former European giants Nottingham Forrest. The former midfielder was born in 1971 and had a long and successful playing career in which he played for ten clubs over a 20 year period.

He spent the bulk of his footballing career in his native France, and Italy although he did move to the Middle East towards the end of his career. As well as success at club level, Lamouchi was handed 12 caps by France over a five year period. When France won the World Cup in 1998, Lamouchi was included in the preliminary squad for the tournament but, sadly for him, he was not selected Aime Jacquet - understandably, Lamouchi maintains that his omission is one of the biggest regrets of his career.

At the start of his career, Lamouchi played for his local club, Ales, who were, at the time, in and around France's lower leagues. He would make over a century of appearances for the team. Perhaps what was most impressive about his time at the club however was his goal return: he bagged 26 times. This, for a midfielder, is a very healthy games to goals ratio; roughly one in every 4 games he played. This is a trait that Lamouchi has exhibited throughout his career - he was a rare phenomenon: a goalscoring midfielder.

His exploits would earn him a move to Auxerre. This was Lamouchi's first taste of the French top-flight where he would spend much of his career. Having turned out 129 times for Auxerre, they are the club for whom Lamouchi played the most football. Time wise, also, it was his longest run at a single team. Again, his goalscoring was impressive, Lamouchi netted 19 times in this duration.

Arguably, Lamouchi's golden years began in 1998 when he signed for Monaco where he would stay for two solid seasons. Here he got his first taste of premier silverware, Monaco were crowned French Ligue 1 champions after a magnificent campaign to which Lamouchi contributed greatly. This was one of four trophies Lamouchi lifted in his time as a player.

Following his French successes, Lamouchi was acquired by Parma who were enjoying some of their finest years, both in Serie A and in Europe, at the time of his signing. This would kick-start a five-year spell in Italy, three of these years Lamouchi played with Parma. The Frenchman got his hands on more silverware when Parma were triumphant in the Copa Italia, Italy's premier cup competition. While Lamouchi generally played well for Parma, his goalscoring was not as impressive as it had been in France. He scored seven times in his 90 appearances for the club.

Staying in Italy, Lamouchi then moved on to Inter Milan. He was less successful in Milan; again his goalscoring was poor - in fact, he didn't score a goal at all in his time there. He was unable to prove to the manager that he was worthy of a consistent spot in the starting 11 and consequently he felt it would be best for all parties if he was to move elsewhere. In 2004, he embarked on a season-long loan at rival Serie A side Genoa. he would fare slightly better there, making 20 appearances and scoring his first goal in nearly two years.

Upon returning from his loan spell, Lamouchi was told he had been transfer listed. Marseille quickly came for his services. Lamouchi was keen to return to his native France and therefore the Ligue 1 team seemed a sensible option. Here, Lamouchi would become a regular starter and go on to somewhat rediscover his goalscoring form, he netted five times in 36 appearances.

In the twilight of his career, Lamouchi decided to leave Europe and maximise his earning power in the Middle East where, for three years he played with Al-Rayyan, Umm-Salal and Al-Kharitiyath.

Some five years later, Lamouchi decided to make the move into management. He took charge of Ivory Coast's 'golden generation' for the 2014 World Cup. The team were disappointing on the biggest stage however and were unable to progress from the group stage. For three years he would return to the Middle East, overseeing El Jaish moving back to France to take charge of Rennes. After a promising start to life at the club, Lamouchi was relieved of his duties in his second season. And now, Lamouchi has been named manager of Nottingham Forrest.
