New Owners' Excitement

13 July 2012

Abdulaziz, Fawaz and Omar Al Hasawi have expressed their happiness at having completed their purchase of Nottingham Forest Football Club.

They visited the Academy today before introducing themselves to staff at The City Ground.

Abdulaziz told Forest Player: "We are very excited. On behalf of myself, my brother, Fawaz, and my cousin, Omar, we are privileged to be a part of this great club."

The family revealed that they had a number of clubs on their radar but jumped at the chance to take over The Reds.

"We have been offered so many big clubs in the UK." Abdulaziz continued.

"We always study very carefully what we enter in to. We found that Nottingham Forest were the best name for us. They will always have that name and that history."

Despite his excitement, Abdulaziz is under no illusion that there is plenty of work to be done: "We haven't yet finished. This is just the beginning. We have put together a long term business plan to bring this club where it should be.

"It's going to take a lot of hard work, sacrifice and careful planning. We are well aware of the situation and willing to take the challenge.

"I would like to reassure our fans that things are back on track. I just need their patience and understanding about what happens in the future."
