13 Jul 2012 STATEMENT ISSUED BY THE LMA ON BEHALF OF STEVE COTTERILL
The LMA has issued the following statement on behalf of Steve Cotterill following his departure from Nottingham Forest Football Club.
Steve Cotterill said:
“I am deeply disappointed that I will no longer have the opportunity to manage Nottingham Forest Football Club and lead the team into this new era.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time in charge at the City Ground. Last season, after taking charge in difficult circumstances, I was proud to guide Forest clear of relegation and ultimately bring back some stability to the club.
“I fully appreciate that in football a change of ownership can unfortunately lead to a change of manager. Despite this, I believed the team’s performances last season were good enough for me to be given a chance with the new regime and continue to build again for the new season.
“Nethertheless, I wish the club every success for the future. I would also like thank my staff, players and the supporters; I enjoyed a fantastic relationship with every one of them during my time in charge.
“The matter of my dismissal is now in the hands of the LMA and I will therefore be making no further comment at this stage.”
