Dennis is not normal, Ranieri hails Nigerian


Watford manager, Claudio Ranieri, has hailed the performance of Nigeria international, Emmanuel Dennis, saying ‘he’s not a normal man’.

Dennis who has been a sensation this season since joining the English Premier League side, scoring his sixth goal in 13 league matches in the Hornets’ 2-1 loss to Chelsea on Wednesday.

His goal against Chelsea makes him the first Watford player to score in three consecutive Premier League matches in a row since Troy Deeney in February 2017.

Despite the loss, Ranieri was full of praise for his star player who was a thorn in the flesh of Chelsea defenders saying he’s however, not surprised by the forward’s display after his previous exploits against Real Madrid in the Champions League in the 2019/20 season.

“I’m not surprised because he (Dennis) is a very good player. He scored twice at the Bernabeu! Anyone who scores two at the Bernabeu is not a normal man,” Ranieri told the club website.

“He has speed, intelligence, he is generous, and I like how he plays. He has to improve because he is young, but I have a very good relationship with him, and all of my players.”

The 24-year-old has also been named in list of players for the month of November after his impressive performance in the month.

He scored two goals and two assists in his last three games in the league in November. (Punch)
