NOTTINGHAM FOREST recruiting bosses face sacking as boss Steve Cooper’s job is also in doubt after splashing out £150m on 22 players, reports say.
The newly promoted side got off to a bad start in the Premier League, winning just one out of eight games.
And Cooper is struggling to convince his new players after spending £150m in the summer transfer window.
According to The Telegraph, CEO Dane Murphy and recruiting chiefs George Syrianos and Andy Scott face an uncertain future as owner Evangelos Marinakis is set to take drastic action.
Cooper is also struggling for his job after Forest’s 4-0 defeat by Leicester City on Monday night.
With the defeat, the foxes overtook Forest in the table, and the latter are now at the bottom with just four points.
CEO Murphy only joined the club from Barnsley last year but the report says former Newcastle chief executive Lee Charnley, who currently has an advisory role at the City Ground, could replace him.
Recruitment chief Syrianos joined Forest from Stuttgart before the start of last season.
And scouting chief Scott was appointed in January this year after stints at Watford, Brentford and Swansea.
After Monday’s defeat, Cooper refused to hit his players as they try to grow together as a new group while playing “in the toughest league in the world”.

He said: “The result streak is not good, I won’t shy away from that.
“Tactically, we weren’t what we had planned.
“I didn’t like us in the duels. There are phases in games where we let the result run away from us.
“I refuse to really criticize the players as a group. I don’t want to sound soft and fluffy.
“It’s the last thing I am. It’s hard for her. It’s a unique situation.
“Relationships and connections are built over time.
“We try that at work in the toughest league in the world.”
