Cohen reveals what has been poor about Al Hasawi control of Nottingham Forest
By Danny Wright
Chris Cohen believes that Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al Hasawi has been let down by the people he has employed during his time at the City Ground.
The Kuwaiti business man, who is expected to sell Forest in the not-too-distant future, has been the chairman at the City Ground since 2012 but this season has seen the club come the closest it’s come to relegation under his control.
Mark Warburton was named as manager in March and led the Reds to Championship safety by the skin of their teeth thanks to goal difference.
Club captain Cohen believes that the worst is finally over though and they can now begin to look forward to Warburton’s first summer in charge.
“I will reiterate what I have said about Fawaz (Al Hasawi) before: he has put a lot of money in to the club and his heart is genuinely in the right place,” said Cohen as quoted by the Nottingham Post.

“Unfortunately the way the club has been run, by people he has employed, has not been good enough. But that seems to be sorted now as well.”
Cohen, 30, is likely to enter his tenth season at the City Ground but his time there has been ravaged by injury.
The former West Ham midfielder has managed to play 22 times this season for the Reds but suffered a four-month long injury lay off in the middle of the season.
He made a full return in the 2-2 draw with Derby, which was also Warburton’s first game in charge of the club.
