MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - Nottingham Forest, who upset Arsenal in the FA Cup third round, have appointed Spanish coach Aitor Karanka as their new manager.

Championship club Forest beat Arsenal 4-2 on Sunday with caretaker manager Gary Brazil in charge following the departure of Mark Warburton last month.

Karanka, a former Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao player, was fired by Middlesbrough last season as the club headed towards relegation from the Premier League.

The 44-year-old had guided Middlesbrough to promotion from the Championship in 2016.
