Arsenal-Linked Striker Dennis Speaks About Scoring Against Manchester United And Real Madrid
Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis has revealed that scoring against Manchester United in a Europa League round of 32 clash in February 2020 was the highlight of the goals he scored in the 2019-2020 campaign.

The Nigeria national-teamer netted three more goals in European competitions in 2019, including a memorable brace against Real Madrid in a Champions League group game at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Dennis, who is rated in the region of 25 million euros, is being linked with a summer move to the English Premier League, with Arsenal amongst the teams credited with an interest.

"Against Manchester United was a highlight. Madrid is a big team, the best in the world, but I was disappointed because I wanted us to win and we drew. I wanted that three points," Dennis told Sky Sports.

I was happy because I was speaking with friends and they said 'imagine you play against Real Madrid'. I said I'm going to score and I'm going to do the Ronaldo celebration and they were like 'what, are you sure?' and I said 'yeah', so we bet.

"I was excited to score and do the celebration, I was very happy that day. But I was happier after a few weeks, I was on my phone and I saw the picture of my celebration and I thought 'you scored in Madrid', the excitement came after a few weeks. It was crazy."

Dennis went on to reveal that his brother, a staunch Manchester United fan, was delighted to see him find the net against the club he supported.

"My brother is a Manchester United fan, a crazy one, he's always angry when they lose. So then I played against them and scored and he said 'OK, I'm proud of you," he concluded.
