Sabri Lamouchi (Arabic: صبري لموشي‎, born 9 November 1971) is a French former professional footballer who played as a midfielder. He is the manager of EFL Championship club Nottingham Forest.

Early life[edit]

Lamouchi was born in Lyon, France, and is of Tunisian descent.[1]

Club career[edit]

Lamouchi started his professional career with Alès in France. During his time there, he impressed Auxerre and played with them for four years. He then went on to join Monaco, who he helped to the Ligue 1 title in 2000, before being snapped up by Parma of Italy. Even though he had an average season, he was again on the move this time to Italian giants Inter Milan. He also struggled there, and failed to win a place in the team.[citation needed]

Lamouchi had a spell at Genoa before joining Marseille on loan the following year. In January 2006, the loan deal was made a permanent move. He played for Marseille for six further months, until he announced that he was leaving the club on 18 September 2006, although his contract ran until June 2007.[citation needed]

In 2006, Lamouchi moved to Al-Rayyan in the Qatar Stars League, where he scored a spectacular goal in his first match. The next season, he joined Umm-Salal.[citation needed]

In January 2009, Lamouchi transferred to Al-Kharitiyath.[citation needed]

International career[edit]

Lamouchi was capped 12 times and scored one goal for the French national team. He made his debut in 1996 and was a member of the French European Championship squad the same year. He was in France's 28 men-preliminary squad for the 1998 FIFA World Cup on home soil. However he was one of the six players axed by head coach Aimé Jacquet just before the tournament began. The team went on to win the tournament.[2]

Managerial career[edit]

In May 2012, he became manager of the Ivory Coast national team, his first managerial position. The Elephants qualified for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, ranked 23rd at the time – highest ranked in Africa – and started their group play with a 2–1 victory over Japan. That was followed by a 2–1 loss to group favourite Colombia. On his last game as Ivory Coast's manager, he and his team lost 2–1 against Greece and they were eliminated from the FIFA World Cup. The team featured stars such as Yaya Touré, Gervinho, Wilfried Bony and Didier Drogba. Lamouchi resigned from the position following Les Elephants' exit from the competition.[3]
On 8 November 2017, Lamouchi signed with French side Rennes. He led the team to a 5th place synonymous with Europa League qualification. On 3 December after a string of bad results, he was sacked from the club. [4]

On 28 June 2019, following the departure of Martin O'Neill, it was announced that Lamouchi would become head coach of Nottingham Forest for the 2019-20 season.[5] He enjoyed a strong start to the season which lead to him winning the league's Manager of the Month award for September.[citation needed]
