The Reds Chairman is looking for a new manager after parting company with Alex McLeish by mutual consent
Fawaz visited the Club’s training base earlier today and spoke to the players after watching them in training.
He said: “I cannot pretend that the last six months or so have been an easy time, either for myself and my family or the Club as a whole.
“We have had to make some difficult decisions and have had many issues to resolve.
“I know that many of our fans are frustrated. I want them to know that I share their frustrations but I remain as committed as ever to Nottingham Forest.
“The challenge is bigger than I envisaged when we purchased the Club last summer but I will do everything I can to bring success and happiness back to the followers of Nottingham Forest.
“We have another important decision to make in appointing a new manager and ask for supporters to be patient.
“We have a strong vision and plan for Nottingham Forest and our willingness to succeed remains undimmed by the disappointments we have experienced in the past six months.
“We will return Nottingham Forest to its former glory.”
