It is a big honour and at the same time a great challenge to work with such a historical and important club as Nottingham Forest and I want to sincerely thank the Chairman for offering this opportunity to me.

I respect deeply the history of the club but we have to look ahead and create the background for a new chapter of success, stability and victories. Nottingham Forest has huge potential and I believe and hope I can contribute significantly in bringing the club back to the Premier League.

Our focus is to prepare the team for the coming season and to fulfil our ambitions. We need the support of all Nottingham Forest fans to achieve our goals.
