'It's simple': Freedman's message and promise to Nottingham Forest fans

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman has made a promise to the club's fans over next season.

Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman refused to talk up his side’s chances of getting promoted in the Championship next season, with a very brief assessment he gave to Forest Player.

Freedman stressed that he will simply work with whatever squad he has available next season, insisting that whichever team he puts out, the club’s fans will never see his side giving up.

“I will work with what I’ve got, it’s as simple as that – If they come up short, they come up short, if they win the league, they win the league, I will work as best as I possibly can – You will never see a team under me giving up,” said Freedman.

Forest are one of the biggest clubs in the Championship and will definitely be in the mix next year for a top six place.

The worry for fans may be the restrictions the club have as they look to improve their squad, with their hands tied over the number of players they can bring in this summer and the cash they can throw at the situation.

It could be difficult for the Scot to find the players needed to drive the side forward and onto the next level, but he will work hard to try and improve the options he already has.

Other managers with bigger egos may have made bigger predictions over their side, which can build excitement which then leads to frustration and them looking very silly.

Freedman is a boss who prefers a simpler approach, taking one week at a time and he’ll assess what his team might be capable of at the start of the 2015/2016 campaign.
