    Wicked Whispers: Dan Petrescu says he turned down Nottingham Forest

    Dan Petrescu says he was offered a contract by Nottingham Forest to be their next manager.

    The former Chelsea defender is out of work after leaving Al Arabi, Qatar and rumours had been linking the Romanian with the City Ground hot-seat even before Stuart Pearce was sacked on Sunday afternoon.

    Dougie Freedman was the man named as new manager, but, in an interview with Romanian sports website DigiSport, Petrescu revealed the deal was “99 per cent” done with the Reds.

    “Everyone knows that I had offers from Nottingham,” he told DigiSport.

    “I wanted quickly, without discussing and (they) said we need to talk. So I talked about more, they decided to choose another coach.

    “Let’s say that everything was 99 per cent done, at one time I was ready to get my ticket to go to London.”

    He added: “I think Nottingham is a team that suits me.”

    It is being reported Petrescu was only offered a three month contract and that is why he turned it down.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Fawaz uses Freedman til the summer then gets Petrescu in.

    He wanted to leave the path clear for Malky, Warnock, Laudrup, Di Matteo and Mourhino

    Freedman seriously is as good as were getting now. Great land by Fawaz.

    Sounds like a similar story to how Warnock 'turned us down'. I get the feeling it was the opposite - especially considering how quick the managerial appointment was made.

    It seems fairly safe to assume that they were talking to him about taking over when Emad tweeted as much four games ago. And 'everyone' knew as Petrescu put it. It's a complete lack of respect for somebody who deserved much more.

    With our situation theres absolutely, 110% no doubt in my mind who'd id sooner have in charge. Pet Rescue has fuck all experience in this league, the added obsticle of being from a foreign culture, and a silly name.

    Give me the cheeky Scottish Freedman any day of the week.

    I don't want anyone in charge of Nottingham Forest who did this to themselves at the age of 30.

    Petrescu would be a very bad choice. He didn't exactly achieved astonishing success in Poland when he was managing one of the strongest teams and failed to win the league even though he began his career in the middle of the season when Wisła were league leaders with considerable advantage over next team. He was sacked after just few games of another season after some rather shit results. But when you read an interview with him about it's all someone else's fault "I could have made Wisła a power in football!", "It was all players' fault, they were lazy and didn't want to work hard, they wanted a friendly manager!". He was considered a dictator type and he believes that "in England (unlike in Poland) you get at least few years to build your team!" He believes that worse results are the effect of referees' conspiracy against his teams. And he clearly states that he'd demand a lots of money to build a strong team. Do we need Davies MK. II?

    Petrescu needs to manage Tom Ince somewhere down the line. What a pair.

    I think Freedman was the right choice. I think he'll be fine. Pet Rescue would have been a poor choice.

    Reckon we dodged a bullet here. Freedman is a better option.

    If the option was Freedman or Petrescu then I'm liking this appointment.

    Somebody can bump this thread when Petrescu's next through the door.

    Pet Rescue? Was Fawaz trying to tap up Ace Ventura?

    I get the feeling the PR department, or rather the lack thereof, is run like a very tabloid and rude school newspaper.

    Was it too loud:

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?
