After Stuart Pearce failed to succeed at the City Ground, Al-Hasawi reluctantly replaced the club icon with Dougie Freedman and Forest's campaign revitalised.
Freedman's men ended the season on a bad note, however, with a poor run of results.
And Al-Hasawi is hoping for better results next season. He thanked the fans for their support - as well as all the club's staff on social media and outlined Nottingham Forest's 'main goal' for next term: keeping the supporters happy.
I would like to thank everybody that stood by the team. Our fans and the staff, it is highly appreciated.— @FAWAZ_ALHASAWI (@fawaz_alhasawi1) May 3, 2015
Hopefully the next season will be much better, and we'll see the results that we want.#nffc— @FAWAZ_ALHASAWI (@fawaz_alhasawi1) May 3, 2015

Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury also took to Twitter with a similar sentiment on Sunday night.
Indeed, the Forest mainstay thanked supporters for all their support home and away and admitted it is a 'shame' the club aren't where they want to be.
Like Al-Hasawi, however, Lansbury promised more next year.
Wana say a massive thanks for ur support this year home and away just a shame were not where we want to be but will go again next year Nffc— Henri Lansbury (@lansburyhenri) May 3, 2015
Forest finished their Championship campaign in 14th place in the table - a good 19 points off the play-off places.
There were times when the City Ground outfit showed strong form, though. It is simply about staying consistent...
