It is a privilege

14 March 2017

Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton said it is a privilege to take over at The City Ground and is excited about the challenge ahead.

The 54-year-old was appointed this morning alongside assistant manager David Weir and he hopes to build on the good work already being done at the club.
He said: “I am delighted to be here; privileged to be here. I am well aware of the stature and history of the club and the expectation, but you can already see the quality of the squad and the quality of the staff here and the good work being done.
“It came about very quickly and it has been a whirlwind two or three days. We recognise that it is difficult for players and staff during times of change and that is the nature of football but we look forward to the challenges that lie ahead.
“The job is very clear – to take the club back to where it needs to be. It is a pleasure to be here and hopefully we can be successful.”
