Under-Pressure Cooper not afraid of losing Nottingham Forest job

Despite suffering a 5-0 defeat at Fulham, Steve Cooper, the under-pressure manager of Nottingham Forest, is not contemplating losing his job.

Braces from Alex Iwobi and Raul Jimenez, along with a goal from Tom Cairney, added to the misery for Cooper, who witnessed his team lose their last four Premier League matches.

Sheffield United is at the bottom of the Premier League table with only 1 win and 5 points, but Steve Cooper is not concerned about losing his job.

Forest manager told reporters: “It was a painful night and a scoreline we deserve.

“We didn’t show enough desire and will make up for it. We pulled out of tackles and lost races. If you show the lack of desire you run the risk of getting what we got tonight.

Cooper added: “I’m grateful (for the fan support). I have to take responsibility for it and it’s on me. I have to take ownership for that but it’s embarrassing and they don’t deserve it.

“Yeah, course I do (feel like the right man to turn it around) but I probably think about that the least but I feel about what is right about the football club,” Cooper added.

“Technically we let ourselves down with the giveaways when there’s no pressure on the ball.

“It’s not something I’m thinking about (losing his job) and what’s right for the football club is right for me. I haven’t spoken to (the owner) since the game,” Cooper said.
