What Fawaz Al Hasawi said in his statement
FOREST chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi last night issued a statement insisting that the club will work to add new faces on loan – and that he has a positive relationship with Alex McLeish.
"Alex and I talk every day. We have a great working relationship and it troubles me greatly that people think otherwise," said the owner. "I have been involved in football for 15 years and have never interfered when it comes to the players a manager wants to sign.
"We have signed 18 players this season and all of them were chosen by Alex McLeish or Sean O'Driscoll. All I want is to see Forest back in the Premier League and, if that means I have to sign another 18 players that Alex wants, I will do it.
"Alex and I have spoken at length and he has outlined the kind of players he would like to bring on loan. I have heard it suggested that my family do not have the money to fund what we are trying to achieve at Forest or that we don't have any idea what we are doing. That upsets me because all I want is to make this club successful."
