Nottingham Forest boss Paul Williams refutes quit reports, says he is the only man who picks team

Reports this week suggested that Williams was on his way out of the City Ground already.

A report this week has suggested that Nottingham Forest caretaker boss Paul Williams was on the verge of walking out on the club.

The Sun reported that he was set to leave after chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi had interfered with team selection.

The report was damning of the current situation at Forest, especially as Williams has only recently taken over from Dougie Freedman in charge of the club.

But the club have denied the reports since they emerged and now the man himself has had his say. Williams was speaking to BBC Nottingham Sport today when he confirmed that he was going nowhere and that nobody else had any influence over team selection at the club:

"Categorically it's down to me to pick the team and that's what I've done.

"I'm here for every challenge that comes until May 7th."

Williams has struggled since taking over from Freedman, who was sacked last month.

Forest are without a win in their last five games and have won once in their last 10 fixtures.

With six games left of the season Forest need to pick up their form as soon as possible to ensure they do not find themselves being caught in the relegation battle by the likes of MK Dons and Charlton Athletic.
