Less than three months into his tenure at the City Ground, Steve McClaren could leave the club after falling out with the Nottingham Forest boardroom staff.
The manager was apparently told that he would substantial financial backing this summer, but is now up in arms with chairman, Nigel Doughty, after the club saw nine players leave and spent only £2m in the transfer window, now closed.
Forest have gotten off to a questionable start this season, winning only one game so far, and with McClaren already having a debatable reputation, he is adamant to not see his managerial prowess suffer anymore.
The club are understood to have missed out on summer moves for then-Leeds United winger Max Gradel, who ended up moving to St. Etienne in France, and Ashkan Dejagah, who McClaren was looking to loan from former club, Wolfsburg.
The Reds’ boss is now at his home in the north-east, apparently contemplating whether or not to carry on with the same club that saw Billy Davies fired last season, for falling out with the club on similar terms.
