New Nottingham Forest Director of Football Frank McParland says joining The Reds was an opportunity he couldn’t turn down.
McParland joined Forest on Friday after a spell at Glasgow Rangers and spoke exclusively to Forest Review for the first time since his move to The City Ground.
He said: “It is a really interesting place with massive potential. The people I have met in Nottingham have been really friendly; it is a huge footballing city and the fans are passionate which was evident at the match on Saturday.
“I got a call off Fawaz and I have had a few dealings with him before through my time at Burnley so I had a good relationship with him. It was strange the way it came around and it was out of the blue. I have had a number of conversations with him over the years about a number of different players and when he rang I took it seriously because the club is such a fantastic club.”
