In a sensational statement, Brian Clough made a huge u-turn by claiming that he wasn’t going to retire. The outgoing manager said that he had “shelved the plans to retire.” Clough had shocked the soccer world last week with the news that he would retire at the end of the season, insists he will not leave Nottingham Forest until club director Chris Wootton was removed from the board.
Brian Clough said “Just let everybody know that Brian Clough will not be leaving Nottingham Forest until Wootton goes. I have a year remaining on my contract and I’ll see it through.”
Wootton, the man at the centre of the alleged smear campaign to remove Clough, was asked but refused to resign from the board at a meeting with his fellow directors.
