Nottingham Forest defender Harry Toffolo has spoken about the surreal moment that truly wowed him. The 27-year-old has recited a memory of the City Ground when he came as an opposition player with Huddersfield Town.
Toffolo has been speaking with the On and Off the Pitch podcast. The left-back was quizzed on his career, his life and his relationship with Forest midfielder Lewis O’Brien during the interview.
Last season, the defender was playing for Huddersfield. He enjoyed a magnificent campaign, scoring six goals and claiming eight assists as the Terriers reached the Play-Off Final.
Now, he’s claimed that when he came to Forest in the FA Cup last season with Huddersfield, he enjoyed a moment that wowed him. Toffolo came on as a substitute in that game as the Reds ran out 2-1 winners.
He told the On and Off the Pitch podcast: “I love it. When the fans get the flags out and sing Mull of Kintyre, it’s incredible. I came here for Huddersfield, we played here in the FA Cup last year and I was on the bench. We all sat and looked at each other going, ‘Oh my’, it was surreal. It’s something that I can’t explain.”

Toffolo has spoken about a surreal Forest moment and he’s a good character
It’s been a strange season for Toffolo during the 2022/23 campaign. He started it by playing regularly but has since fallen down the pecking order behind Renan Lodi.
In January he almost departed on loan. Anderlecht were keen to sign him and everything was just about completed but Forest pulled the plug on the loan deal, deciding they needed him.
Toffolo has played in the last three games for the Reds. He started against Wolves at the City Ground and has since kept his place for games against Leeds and Aston Villa.
The 27-year-old has come across a great character during his latest interview. Indeed, if Forest do get relegated this season, it’s fair to say that Toffolo will be a huge player for the Reds.
