Nuno has an impressive track record but his struggle with star-studded side Al-Ittihad this season as well as his rough patch at Tottenham Hotspur raises the question as to if he is the right man for the ob. Nuno's track record with small league sides however has been commendable and many expect him to replicate his run with Wolves at Nottingham Forest.

He might not hit the ground running at The City Ground but we see Nottingham Forest stepping out of the relegation zone before the end of the 2023/2024 season.
