Forest confirm Pearce return

Pearce made 78 caps for England

Stuart Pearce will take over as Nottingham Forest manager on a two-year contract on 1 July. The ex-Forest captain initially turned down the job for family reasons but had a change of heart and will replace caretaker-boss Gary Brazil next season.

Former England and Forest left-back Pearce, nicknamed "Psycho" for his combative playing style, joined the club from Coventry City in 1985 and left after a brief spell as caretaker-manager in 1997. Pearce also played for Newcastle United, West Ham and Manchester City after leaving Forest. After a two-year spell as Manchester City manager from 2005, he took over as England Under-21 boss in 2007, a post he held until June 2013, and led the Team GB football side at the 2012 Olympics.

He will take over from Brazil, who has been in charge for the last nine games following the sacking of former boss Billy Davies.

Pearce said the lure of returning to the City Ground as boss was "massive" and said his career would "not be fulfilled" if he did not get the job of managing the Reds.
Good luck.
Goonerous: Cheers mate!
Psycho! Psycho! Stuart, Stuart, give us a wave!!
