The former Nottingham Forest owner, Fawaz al-Hawasi, is keen to be the owner of a club again, despite his legal battle with Forest.

Al-Hawasi fears the club could be relegated to League One following the sacking of manager Martin O’Neill.

Al-Hawasi denies having stolen a replica FA Cup trophy from 1959. He says he bought it from the club. 

The former Nottingham Forest owner, Fawaz al-Hawasi, fears the club could be relegated to League One following the sacking of manager Martin O’Neill after just five months in charge.

Lamouchi - who previously managed the Ivory Coast and Rennes - is the sixth Forest manager since Greek shipping magnate Evangelos Marinakis bought the club two years ago.
