Stuart Pearce MBE (born 24 April 1962) is an English football manager and player. He was most recently the manager of Nottingham Forest before being sacked in February 2015. Pearce was the manager of the England national under-21 team from 2007 to 2013 and also managed the Great Britain Olympic football team at the 2012 Olympics.

As a player, Pearce played as a defender and appeared for Wealdstone, Coventry City, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Manchester City, but is best known for his spell at Nottingham Forest, where he regularly captained the team and became the club's most capped International, making 76 of his 78 appearances for England while with the club and captaining the national side on nine occasions. He retired as a player in 2002 while at Manchester City. He remained with Man City as a coach under Kevin Keegan's managership until being promoted to the manager's job, which he held from 2005 to 2007. In 2016, he briefly came out of retirement, signing a one-match deal with Longford, a team dubbed 'The worst in Great Britain', in order to support the grass roots game.
