Dennis promise to bounce back stronger

Watford attacker, Emmanuel Dennis has promised to come back better next season.

The 24-year-old had a decent season in the English topflight last season.

He netted 10 goals and provided six assists for The Hornets in 36 Premier League outings, finishing as Watford's top scorer.

Despite his impressive performance in his debut season, Watford was relegated to the EFL Championship following their disappointing campaign last term which saw them finish 19th with 23 points.

Dennis is likely to leave the Vicarage Road when the summer transfer window opens as West Ham and Aston Villa are reportedly interested in the Nigerian international.

In a tweet via his official handle, the former Club Brugge striker thanked his fans for all the support and promised to bounce back stronger.

The forward scored his first international goal on Monday, June 13, 2022, when the Eagles thumped Sao Tome by 10-0 in their second AFCON qualifiers game.
