Stuart Pearce tipped for Nottingham Forest job

Stuart Pearce emerges as the frontrunner to fill the vacant managerial post at Nottingham Forest.

Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al Hasawi has dropped what appears to be a strong hint that Stuart Pearce is the frontrunner for the vacant managerial post at the club.

The Kuwati businessman promised that the candidate he has lined up will be a popular choice among supporters as he has previous connections with the club.

"I can promise the fans will be very happy with the signing. He's a good manager. He has a good record and everybody likes him," the Daily Star quotes Al Hasawi as saying.

"We have been speaking with the new manager. But I want to clear up one thing - everybody thinks Fawaz Al Hasawi interferes with the manager's position which is really, really wrong.

"We don't want to rush, we want to pick the right man. I don't want to say too much, but, yes, he has a connection."

Former City Ground favourite Pearce has been out of work since being sacked as England Under-21 coach in June last year.

Gianfranco Zola, Glenn Hoddle and Steve Clarke have also been tipped as potential replacements for ousted Forest boss Billy Davies.

Former England manager Glenn Hoddle is interviewed for British televison ahead of the UEFA Champions League football match between Benfica and Chelsea at Estadio da Luz in Lisbon, on March 26, 2012
