O'Neill on stadium redevelopment plans

28 February 2019

Nottingham Forest manager Martin O'Neill is delighted with plans to redevelop The City Ground and for the club to remain at its home.

O'Neill is excited about the future at the club and the ambitions of the owner, Mr Evangelos Marinakis, in taking the club forward.

He said: "It is good news that we are staying here, in our historic home. 

"There have been changes I have seen over the years. The Bridgford End was not covered, for some time. The Trent End was smaller, with people gathered in there.

"I remember the East Stand being built and that took a while. But when it was done and ready, everything seemed great. Now, for the stadium itself to be built to a really high standard – that would be fantastic.

"It will take over a year to build and you would love to think that the club could be in the Premier League, while we are doing that.

"The general view is one that will be fantastic for the club – and it is most importantly we are staying here.

"We hope it will be a Premier League stadium for a Premier League club. The club, at some stage, has to get back there and stay there.

"It would be honestly great to manage this team in the big league and with a stadium to match."
