Club update

14 June 2016

Nottingham Forest owner and chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi has provided the following update on the club’s situation.

I would like to begin by thanking supporters for their patience during what I accept is a frustrating time, with reports of potential investment and our search for a manager causing uncertainty.

It is important we, as a club, conduct our business in private to ensure the best possible outcome for Forest, but I also understand why fans would like assurances that progress is being made on several issues.

I am unable to go into specific detail on the reported investment at the moment but I am confident that a significant deal will be completed very soon.

We are also progressing well with our search for a manager. As I stated at the start of the summer, this was always going to be a carefully thought-out appointment and, although it has taken a little longer than I would have liked, I hope to be in a position to make an appointment shortly.

In addition, I have been working hard to recruit a director of football. Discussions have been very positive with a number of candidates and I am confident we can reach an agreement.

Announcements will be made via official Forest channels when appropriate. In the meantime I ask fans to remain patient, with my assurance that everyone is working very hard behind the scenes for the good of the club’s future.

Thank you for your continued support.

Fawaz
