Eric Lichaj signs new Nottingham Forest contract

Just when you thought Eric Lichaj’s week couldn’t get any better, it did on Friday as he signed a new contract with Nottingham Forest until the end of the 2019 campaign.

Lichaj scored a pair of goals in Forest’s FA Cup third-round win over Arsenal and then added a dog to his family after he made a bet with his wife public that if he scored a hat-trick, she’d get him a dog.

The 29-year-old has been with the Championship clubs since his 2013 move from Aston Villa. Lichaj has played in 182 matches across all competitions for the 14th-placed side in England’s second division.

After their triumph in the third round of the FA Cup, Lichaj and Nottingham Forest will look to continue their success against Hull City in the fourth round on January 27.


  1. I was curious so did some Google research and the average Nottingham Forest salary is about 12,000 pounds per week, or around 620,000 pounds per year. Convert to dollars and it is around one and a half times as much, or around $930 k per year. Since Lichaj was voted their MVP last year and just came off a career performance against Arsenal, I would surmise that he is making over $1 million per year, maybe $1.2 million or more. Not bad, even with England’s tax rate of 45% for income over 150,000 pounds.
