Video: Nottingham Forest star Britt Assombalonga does his best Kanye West impression

The injured striker was spoofing the infamous Kanye West moment at the Grammys this year.

At the beginning of Dougie Freedman’s reign as Nottingham Forest manager he was dealt a massive injury blow.

Forest lost one of their star players after Britt Assombalonga suffered a horrifying knee dislocation. The striker had scored 15 goals for the club this season and with that in mind they were clearly going to miss him. He was ruled out for a year with the horror injury suffered against Wigan Athletic last month.

Forest are starting to look like they miss him a lot more than they originally did after the horror injury, but fans got to catch a glimpse of the striker recently.

He was present at the Nottingham Forest v Watford game, and spoke to the club's official Youtube channel prior to kick-off - when he channeled his best Kanye West impersonation...

He was paying homage to this incident back in February, when Kanye delivered this response to Grammys interviewer Kevin Frazier:

Spot on from Britt we think.

He went on to make it clear that he was remaining positive throughout his injury recovery and all forest fans will be hoping to see him in action at some point this calendar year.

Until then, Kanye impressions will have to do.
