Derby fan mocks Fawaz Al-Hasawi on Twitter, Forest chairman responds

Nottingham Forest chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi does not hold back when mocked by a Derby County fan on Twitter.

Nottingham Forest chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi has hit back at a Derby County fan on social networking site Twitter.

Following the Derby supporter’s accusation that Al-Hasawi cannot run a football club, the Kuwaiti businessman claimed that the Rams will be under a transfer embargo soon.

Forest and Derby are fierce East Midlands rivals and are also two of the biggest clubs in England.

Both are ambitious clubs, but at the moment it is the Rams who appear to be in better shape.

Despite not starting the 2015-16 campaign under new head coach Paul Clement well, Derby remain one of the favourites to finish in the top two of the Championship and gain automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Having signed the likes of Darren Bent, Alex Pearce, Bradley Johnson, Thomas Ince and Andreas Weimann in the summer transfer window, Derby fans will be confident of a successful season.

As for Forest, they lost star player Michail Antonio to Premier League side West Ham United on transfer deadline day, and could struggle to even finish in the top six of the Championship this season.
