Newcastle’s Jamaal Lascelles has taken aim at his former club Nottingham Forest, branding the club “a mess”, in an interview with The Mirror.
Lascelles, who left Forest for Newcastle in 2014, admitted he felt sorry for some of the players still at the club.
The defender’s comments are about controversial owner, Fawaz Al Hasawi who is currently close to selling the club.
The 23-year old told Mirror Sport: “Hopefully they sort out the mess they are in. I feel for a few of the players still there. They still have a few really good players. Ben Osborn, Henri Lansbury, Michael Mancienne, they were there when I was there.
“I don’t think they are getting treated fairly for what they are offering and giving to the club.”
Things could be about to get worse for Forest, who sit just two points outside the Championship relegation zone, as it appears Lansbury will be leaving the club this transfer window.
The club captain is on the radar of a number of clubs including Aston Villa, and is out of contract at the end of the season.
Montanier’s Forest currently sit in 20th position in the Sky Bet Championship table, in what has been a disastrous campaign so far for the Reds.
