Steve Cooper is facing the sack after his Nottingham Forest side slid to a dismal fourth consecutive league defeat at Fulham.
Mail Sport revealed on November 25 that Cooper was under huge pressure after Forest were beaten 3-2 at home by Brighton.
They were then booed off following the 1-0 home loss to Everton on December 2.
The 5-0 thrashing by Fulham looks set to be the final straw, with the club just two places above the bottom three.
Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis, who was at Craven Cottage, is now poised to start the hunt for Cooper’s replacement, with former Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui one of the coaches he admires.
Another is the manager who looks set to have ended the Cooper era — Fulham’s Marco Silva, who worked under Marinakis at Olympiacos.
