Championship Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al Hasawi is still committed to bringing success to the City Ground, but admitted he is disappointed with the first seven months of his family's tenure at the club.
"The challenge is bigger than I envisaged when we purchased the club but I will do everything I can to bring success back to the followers of Forest," Al Hasawi said.
"I cannot pretend the last six months or so have been an easy time, either for myself and my family or the club as a whole.
"I know many of our fans are frustrated. I want them to know I share their frustrations but I remain as committed as ever.
"We have a strong vision and plan for Nottingham Forest and our willingness to succeed remains undimmed by the disappointments we have experienced in the past six months - we will return Nottingham Forest to its former glory."
