No Argument Insists McLeish

31 January 2013

Nottingham Forest manager Alex McLeish has moved to refute claims of a disagreement between himself and an advisor to chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi.

Recent reports had suggested a rift behind the scenes at The City Ground but McLeish told Forest Player that that there was no substance to the allegations.

McLeish said: “Fawaz is a strong individual, he is the owner and isn’t a successful businessman for no reason. Sometimes he will say no to my requests and suggestions and sometimes I will say no to his because I am a strong manager.

“If that’s the level of the alleged ‘bust-up’ then I guess we’ll be reading about more managers having them with their owners this week.”
