EPL: Emmanuel Dennis is not a normal man – Ranieri

Emmanuel Dennis

Watford manager, Claudio Ranieri, has hailed Emmanuel Dennis who is in fine form for the Premier League side, claiming he is not a normal man.

Dennis became the Hornets’ leading top scorer after netting his sixth league goal of the season in their 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.

The 24-year-old only joinedfrom Club Brugge in June, but Ranieri apparently knows him during his stint in Belgium.

The Italian coach recalled when Dennis scored a brace against Real Madrid in the Champions League in October 2019 and he believes such a feat distinguishes the Nigerian as an outstanding player.

“When there are some injuries you have to find solutions, be clever,” Ranieri told the club’s website.

“Only with work can you do this. Of course, my experience helps me to find solutions, but I also have quality players to do this.

“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. 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.”
