A thousand miles away, but just round the corner in spirit
The Al-Hasawi family have completed their takeover of Championship side Nottingham Forest. They agreed to take control of the two-time European Cup winners after reaching terms to buy the late Nigel Doughty's controlling stake.
"It's an honour and privilege to assume control of this great club," said the Kuwaiti-based family, who plan to hold a news conference on Saturday. "You can be assured of our best efforts in bringing the Reds back to the top."
Doughty put Forest up for sale in October but died four months later. The Al-Hasawi's interest in the club first emerged at the end of May.
