Nottingham Forest takeover: Evangelos Marinakis buys club following EFL approval


"I have nothing to be afraid of and to worry about as I have done nothing wrong", he said.

Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis is poised to complete his takeover of Nottingham Forest within the next 24 hours.

The Championship side said Marinakis' 100 percent buy-out has been approved by the English Football League (EFL) even though an investigation into accusations of match-fixing is ongoing in Greece. All of it has been dismissed and we have been clear from all of this.

"There is a last case remaining", Marinakis told the BBC. I can tell you again that I have nothing to do with it because I know very well what I have done and how I have achieved victories. That is despite allegations of criminality in his homeland, where he is owner of Olympiacos. "Of course I can not stop our opponents talking or bad-mouthing".

News of the sale of the club by the Al-Hasawi family comes months after takeover talks with John Jay Moores, who owns Major League Baseball side the San Diego Padres, fell through.

Marinakis, who set up his business in the United Kingdom after attending school and university in London, wants to replicate his success with Olympiakos at Forest and has appointed lawyer Nicholas Randall as club chairman.

He said: "We believe that in Mark Warburton and his team the right people were selected to take the club forward on the pitch by delivering the passing game that the club's supporters love, and for which Nottingham Forest are known and remembered throughout the world".

Evangelos Marinakis' first announcement included a promise to cut season ticket prices for next season, a new board including a chairman and a pledge to appoint ex-players to other senior roles.
