Nottingham Forest have strongly denied allegations that owner Fawaz Al Hasawi has been involved in recent team selections according to the Nottingham Post.

The Midlands club sacked manager Dougie Freedman last month after a poor run of form which saw the club win just two of the nine matches in all competitions prior to his dismissal.

Former Derby County and Coventry City star Paul Williams has been handed the reigns at The City Ground until the end of the season but it has recently been suggested that the interim Forest boss has been told which players to select for first team duty by club owner Al Hasawi with Williams set to walk away from the club as a result of the reported interference.

Nottingham Forest have strongly denied any wrong doing by their owner and a brief club statement has said that “the club deny all accusations and allegations of this sort.”

Despite the sacking of former manager Dougie Freedman, Forest have continued to tumble down the Championship table with the club drawing one and losing three of the four league fixtures since Freedman’s City Ground exit.

With just six matches left to play, Nottingham Forest look to be safe from any relegation trouble but the club really must make the right permanent managerial appointment in the summer if they are to prosper next season.
