Sky Sports pundit and former Nottingham Forest midfielder David Prutton has expressed hope that this old club can improve under new ownership.
Previous owner Fawaz Al Hasawi made several poor decisions during his control of the club before finally selling them on to Evangelos Marinakis.
However, Marinakis didn’t come without his own controversy, having been accused of match-fixing and owning Greek giants Olympiacos.
Yet, he has started to repair some of the damage done by the previous regime and is offering some much needed stability off the field for Forest at the minute.
Prutton was pleased that these solid foundations are in place.
“You’ve got to be cautiously optimistic as football can kick you when you think you’re flying. Forest need that structure and consistency, not just in the team selection but in backing the manager,” he told the Nottingham Post.
“The new ownership seem to be embracing the former players who bought glory to the club. You have to do that.”
On the pitch, it’s been a mixed start for Forest, who take on bitter rivals Derby County this Sunday.
After a turbulent and unpredictable spell under Al Hasawi, Forest and their fans will just be looking for some stability.
So far, that’s exactly what Marinakis has provided. There’s been no unrealistic statements, big changes or demands, he’s just let Warburton do his job.
Now, it’s down for the manager to deliver as he looks to build a team capable of returning to the Premier League.
