Lars Bohinen says he is excited about Nottingham Forest's prospects

Former Nottingham Forest midfielder Lars Bohinen is upbeat about the club's prospects.

Notttingham Forest are a side who would probably be quite happy if the season ended now, allowing them to move on with next year's plan.

It has been a difficult season, with a transfer embargo limiting their ambition, as well as a number of injuries to key players, and the sale of Michail Antonio.

Manager Dougie Freedman was fired last month and no replacement has been hired, and in the meantime interim boss Paul Williams has lost all four games of his tenure.

Forest are sliding down the table at an alarming rate, and are just seven points clear of the relegation zone with five games to play. It should be enough to keep them in the Championship, but they could do with a win or two just to make sure.

Despite the doom and gloom, former Forest midfielder Lars Bohinen says he is 'excited' for next season, in a short post on Twitter.

His view goes against the grain a little, with fans worried about the direction the club is headed, and Bohinen was quizzed if he knows anything behind the scenes about what is ahead - something he denied.

Former Norwegian international Bohinen is right that Forest is a great club, and need stability, but if they are to be successful they just need to get to the end of this season with their Championship status intact.
