Championship news: McLeish left Nottingham Forest by mutual consent after less than six weeks

Championship news: McLeish left Nottingham Forest by mutual consent after less than six weeks

Daily Mail informs Alex McLeish “did Clough” walking out on Nottingham Forest after being just 41 days in charge.

McLeish was unveiled as the Foresters’ manager on December 27, but left his post due to “a difference in the understanding of the development strategy of the football club.” In fact McLeish was dissatisfied with the interference of the new club’s owners Al-Hasawi family in team’s affairs.

The 54-year-old Scottish voiced his discontent after the transfer of George Boyd from Peterborough fell through on the deadline day which is believed to be a cause of the bust-up between him and the club’s owners.

McLeish revealed via statement on the web-site: “I am extremely saddened to be leaving after such a short period. But even so, it has been a privilege to be manager of such a fantastic football club and I want to thank the players, staff and fans for their support and wish Nottingham Forest the best of fortunes ahead.”

“Both parties entered into the relationship in good faith. However, there was a difference in the understanding of the development strategy of the football club and it was felt by both parties that we should part company.”
