Forest fans on Twitter have started calling for Karanka to be sacked after Brentford loss

Nottingham Forest lost 2-1 away to Brentford on Saturday and that was the clue for a number of fans on Twitter to call for manager Aitor Karanka to be sacked.

Karanka has been in charge at Forest since January this year and spent big money over the summer. The Reds splashed out over £20m on a total of 14 new players during the transfer window, with the £13.2m capture of Joao Carvalho from Benfica becoming the club’s new record signing.

Forest were actually unbeaten in the league before the trip to Brentford but had drawn four games and only won one. The amount of money spent and the Spanish boss’ tendency to set his team up in a more defensive system is now certainly beginning to cause some unrest among Forest fans.

The Reds now sit in 14th place in the Championship table with just seven points from their first six matches of the campaign.

However, Karanka’s best moment as Forest boss was perhaps last week’s 3-1 win over Newcastle in the Carabao Cup so it is unlikely that the board will make any changes just yet. Check out some of the best tweets from Forest fans calling for their manager to be sacked.
