Frustrating news for Nottingham Forest fans as fall-out continues from former owner



Nottingham Forest have launched legal proceedings against former owner Fawaz Al Hasawi after the club claimed they are still owed money following its sale, according to The Nottingham Post.

The Kuwaiti has in turn launched legal proceedings of his own against the East Midlands-based side, claiming that it is he who is in fact owed a sum of cash.

The Reds had hoped to keep the process out of the public eye, but representatives Browne Jacobson LLP confirmed the case in a statement, which read: “We can confirm that Nottingham Forest has commenced legal proceedings against Mr Al Hasawi and a related party claiming various sums that have become due and owing since the completion of the sale of the club in May 2017.”

Al Hasawi took over the club in 2012, but big spending resulted in a Financial Fair Play transfer embargo, leaving the Kuwaiti an unpopular figure when he finally departed five years later.

The Verdict

Nottingham Forest fans will despair at this news, with many having believed that their dealings with the divisive figure were a thing of the past.

Now the process of legal proceedings is likely to dominate the club and distract from matters on the field, adding further concern to a side that are struggling to find form under new boss Aitor Karanka.

Hopefully for fans the matter will be dealt with quietly and efficiently, and a positive outcome for Nottingham Forest Football Club will be the final verdict.
