Nigel Clough has added further to his coaching staff with the appointment of Johnny Metgod and Clough is more than happy with the appointment of the former Portsmouth assistant.

“This is an excellent appointment for us and a fantastic addition to the coaching set-up.

“Johnny has played at the highest level and coached at the highest level and his knowledge of the game is second to none.

“He also possesses an infectious enthusiasm.

“Johnny won’t have a specific role. I want to use his talents in a number of areas.

“He will assist with coaching the first team, the Academy and also get involved with the scouting process. I believe we now have a first-class coaching set-up throughout the club as we prepare for the new season.”

Clough was talking to the Evening Telegraph.

The Dutchman, who was a former team-mate of Clough’s during his Forest days, will help with the coaching of the first-team and reserves as well as helping with some scouting of players.
