Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman says he can now concentrate on the club’s long-term future after signing his contract extension.The Scotsman completed the formalities of the deal on Thursday and is looking forward to putting further plans in place.
Freedman told Forest Player: “I’m delighted. I feel very honoured and proud to manage the football club.
“We’ve been speaking for a few weeks but I’m glad it’s over because now we can concentrate on what matters moving forward.
“It gives me the chance to push on and get some plans in place.”
Freedman takes his side to face Blackburn Rovers tomorrow, and he says he has ‘big decisions’ to make regarding team selection.
The manager said: “They’re a typical Championship team - 442. They’ll make it very difficult for us. There’ll be not a lot in the game.
“I feel if we can take care of their strike force we’ll be in with a very good chance of winning.
“I do believe a few players are running on empty. I’ve got to make a couple of big decisions on that tomorrow, making sure we have the best possible chance of winning the game.”
