The former Toulouse goalkeeper replaces Dougie Freedman who was sacked in March after 13 months with the former European Cup winners.

Paul Williams took over management duties until the end of the season at The City Ground, guiding the club to a 16th place finish.

Forest Chairman, Fawaz Al-Hasawi announced the appointment of the French coach on Twitter yesterday.

Supporter, Callum Bridgman commented on the appointment saying, “He seems to be a good manager.

“He took over Sociedad in 2011 and guided them to a fourth-placed finish which shows some ability. I just hope this transfers to Forest for the upcoming season.

“Last season’s 16th place finish was not where we want to be and I hope he will improve the club and allow us to challenge for a promotion place this season.”
