The owner of Nottingham Forest Fawaz Al Hasawi says running the club over the last 6 months has been harder than realised.

It follows the departure of Alex McLeish yesterday as manager.

He said:

"I cannot pretend that the last six months or so have been an easy time, either for myself and my family or the Club as a whole.

"We have had to make some difficult decisions and have had many issues to resolve.

"I know that many of our fans are frustrated. I want them to know that I share their frustrations but I remain as committed as ever to Nottingham Forest.
