• Fawaz al-Hasawi hit with legal letter after taking trophy
• Kuwati prepared to oblige but insists he paid for silverware
It was the greatest achievement in the history of Nottingham Forest during what has become known as the years BC – Before Clough. Yet the Guardian has learned about an extraordinary legal wrangle involving the club, their former owner, Fawaz al-Hasawi, and a replica of the 1959 FA Cup that has gone missing from the City Ground’s trophy cabinet.
In another sign of the deteriorating relations between the club’s current and former regimes, the two-time European Cup winners have brought in lawyers to write to Hasawi saying their information is that he removed the FA Cup at some unspecified point – and stating that they want it back.
