Kuwaiti family takes over Nottingham Forrest

The Kuwaiti Al-Hasawi family has completed a deal to buy two-time European Cup winners Nottingham Forest, the club has confirmed.

In a statement issued on the Championship side’s website, the Al-Hasawis said: “It is an honour and privilege for the Al-Hasawi family to assume control of this great club steeped in history and with the outstanding legacy left by its previous owner Nigel Doughty.”

Doughty put the club up for sale last October before dying of a cardiac arrest at his home in February.

Al-Hasawi’s love for football and previous experience of spending heavily to breed results is potentially great news for Forest fans, who are surely desperate to see their club attempt to return to the glory days.
