Nottingham Forest chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi has told Forest Player that a lot of hard work is going on behind the scenes to help build a squad capable of winning promotion to the Premier League.The Reds have already bolstered their ranks with the permanent signings of Gonzalo Jara Reyes, Darius Henderson, Eric Lichaj, Jamie Paterson and Dorus de Vries, but the chairman has insisted that he is ready to fund further additions should Billy Davies need them.
Mr Al-Hasawi said: “I want the fans to relax and be patient. Myself, my brother Abdulaziz, Billy and all of our staff are working hard to bring in the players the manager wants.
“We are ready to give Billy what he asks for. He is the manager and I want to give him all the tools he needs.”
Speaking during a visit to the club’s Nigel Doughty Academy, Mr Al Hasawi made his expectations for the 2013-14 campaign abundantly clear.
He said: “If we are to go to the next level we have to be ready from the first game. Each game we play will be considered a final – it’s going to be serious.
“We will be focused from the beginning. I wish Billy and his staff all the best.”
