Mr Marinakis sends New Year message to Nottingham Forest fans.
On behalf of everyone at Nottingham Forest I would like to wish all our supporters and everyone connected to the club a very happy New Year.
These are exciting times at our great football club. We are in the play-offs going into a new year for only the second time this decade and we are getting stronger.
Since I have come to the club, we have achieved many things together. We have invested in the team and infrastructure, we have achieved record season card sales, record attendances and record sponsorship deals and, whilst we are satisfied with these statistics, we are determined to continue to grow on and off the pitch.
Our involvement within the local community is expanding daily and we recognise the level of impact this club can have on local people through community initiatives. This is something that is very important to me. We need to be seen to lead in the city of Nottingham, we need to be a force for good and we need to help whenever and wherever we can.
The redevelopment of the Peter Taylor Stand is the biggest investment in the club in over 20 years. This will be an exciting new era, something we can all celebrate, and I promise that we will always keep working hard for you to deliver a stadium that the whole city can be proud of.
You have shown your commitment to the club in record numbers this season. Myself and the staff are truly inspired by this level of support and I cannot thank you enough for your loyalty and commitment. Everywhere I travel in Europe I am humbled by the esteem in which our wonderful club is held. This inspires me to fight every single day to put us back where we belong. Thank you again and I hope you all have a prosperous 2020.
