HASAWI TEMPTED TO SELL FOREST
KUWATI owner Fawaz Al Hasawi admits his love for Nottingham Forest is dwindling and he is pondering selling the Championship club.
This week, Dougie Freedman became the sixth Forest manager to be sacked during Al Hasawi’s four-year tenure, with Paul Williams handed the reins until the end of the season.
Former midfielder Andy Reid has been added to the backroom staff.
Forest have had to contend with a transfer embargo this term, as well as dwindling home attendances. There was also a change to their style of play, with Freedman seemingly sacrificing style for substance in a bid to climb clear of the bottom three.
And, with the club currently in no-man’s-land with neither a promotion push nor relegation dogfight to ponder, it appears Al Hasawi has decided life at the City Ground is not quite as much fun as he had hoped.
“I don’t want to sell and walk away,” he said.
“But, if it carries on in the same way as this, maybe I might do.
“If people are pushing and always negative, and there is no appreciation, why should I continue?
“Maybe there are some people better than me and I am doing it wrong.
“If there is somebody who wants to buy the club and gives me the right money, maybe I do so.”
