Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper would be at the newly promoted Premier League club for the foreseeable future after he signed a new deal. Cooper has signed an extension to his Nottingham Forest contract until the end of the 2024/25 season.

Cooper was under pressure to keep his job as the Nottingham Forest manager after the 4-0 loss to hosts Leicester City in the derby according to various media reports, but the club owners have shown resounding faith in him with the contract extension. The new contract for Cooper as the Nottingham Forest manager was announced by the club on Friday morning.

Nottingham Forest were in the Championship relegation zone last season when Cooper became manager. The club struggled under manager Chris Hughton at the start of last season in the Championship before he was replaced by Cooper. Cooper then took Nottingham Forest to fourth spot at the end of the season thus qualifying for the playoffs. He sealed Premier League promotion by winning the Championship playoffs in May via a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town in the final.

Since their return to the Premier League, Nottingham Forest have struggled for form thus leading to reports of pressure on Cooper tokeep his job. They have lost the five Premier League games after picking up four points from their first three games.

Nottingham Forest would be hoping to arrest their losing run when they welcome Steven Gerrard and his Aston Villa players to the City Ground on Monday. Steven Gerrard was also under pressure to keep his job just like Steve Cooper earlier in the season, but a run of three games without defeat as eased the pressure on him.

Steven Gerrard and his players would be hoping to go four games without defeat in the Premier League this season when they take on Nottingham Forest.
