Who is the Nottingham Forest Manager?

Chris Hughton was born on the 11th of December 1958 in Essex. He 1st joined Tottenham Hotspur as a youth player in 1971 and went on to make a 1st team appearance in 1977, whilst he also trained as a lift engineer. In his early days, Hughton played as a winger, but as time progressed, he was moved back into the full-back position where he spent the majority of his career. Over a 13-year period with the Spurs, Hughton played 400 games and scored on 19 occasions; winning 2 FA Cups and one UEFA Cup. Towards the back end of his Spurs career, he was consistently injured and so fell out of favour.

In the 1990-91 season, fellow London side West Ham signed Hughton on what was initially a loan deal, which did eventually progress to a permanent deal on a free transfer. He played 2 seasons at West Ham, helping them secure promotion from Division Two. He then proceeded to finish off his career at Brentford as they won the third division in 1992, before then retiring as a 34 year old thanks to a knee injury.

Straight after retirement, Hughton jumped straight back into football as a coach at his beloved Tottenham Hotspur. He spent 10 years as a coach whilst also experiencing being caretaker manager of Spurs and also having a brief spell as Republic of Island assistant manager.

He then left to join as a coach at Newcastle United, before then being appointed as caretaker manager whilst Mike Ashley was looking to sell the club. His 1st two games in charge saw Newcastle pick up 4 points, including a memorable 3-0 win over Reading. After a positive start to the 2009-10 season, Hughton was appointed as permanent manager and he furthermore continued to impress as they beat Sheffield United 2-1, thanks to a Kevin Nolan bicycle-kick, which won promotion back to the top-flight. They went on to clinch the title, winning 30, drawing 12 and losing only 4 games as they remained unbeaten at home for the entire season.

In the following season, Hughton won 6-0 against Aston Villa and won many other games, however, Hughton was curiously sacked in December following a 3-1 defeat to West Brom. This sacking caused outrage across the Newcastle fan base, as many thought Hughton was the man to lead this club forward.

Chris Houghton joined Championship side Birmingham City, winning Manager of the Month in October. Throughout the rest of the season, Birmingham were at a steady pace, constantly in and around a play-off position, however, they could not reach the automatic places.

He then landed back in the Premier League as Norwich City manager, recording memorable wins over Manchester United and Arsenal seeing them finish in an 11th place position. They did not improve throughout the next couple of season, seeing Hughton sacked and on new years eve of 2014, Brighton & Hove Albion offered him the job. He proceeded to stay at Brighton for 4 consecutive seasons winning manager of the month on one occasion, unfortunately, he was sacked on the 13th of May 2019.

On 6 October 2020, Hughton was appointed manager of EFL Championship club Nottingham Forest.
