Super Eagles forward, Emmanuel Dennis, who plies his trade in Belgium, has tagged his goals against Zidane’ side and Solskajear side as his ‘best’ in the 19/20 season.

Also, after his club was knocked out of the prestigious competition, dropping to the Europa league, the club was tied with Manchester United, he scored the only goal which ended in stalemate.
The 22-year old forward tagged those two games as his best games of the season, expressing his feeling after he did the Ronaldo’s traditional celebration.
“Against Manchester United was a highlight,” he said in part.
“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.” He told SkySport correspondent.
“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 few weeks. It was crazy.” He added.
“My brother is a Manchester United fan, a crazy one, he is always angry when they lose. So then I played against them and scored and he said ‘OK, I’m proud of you’.” he disclosed.
However, his club, Club Brugge,were crowned the Belgian Pro League champions on Friday after the pandemic crippled the league activities. This was the second time Emmanuel has bagged the title since he left Zorya in 2017.Emmanuel was informed about the title through the social media.
“I was with my friends, we were playing ping pong.
“I saw somebody tagged me in something and I went to look, I said to my friend, ‘go and check’, and he said ‘yeah, you’re champions, congratulations” he happily said.
“It’s a strange way [to win], but that’s life.
“Normally we would have a party but that’s not possible right now so what I’m going to do is stay home with my friends and girlfriend and just drink some champagne.” he concluded.
