Club Brugge striker Dennis Emmanuel has revealed that Getafe midielder, Etebo and Osimhen taunted him ahead of the Champions League game against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Club Brugge against all odds were on the verge of victory after the Super Eagles winger netted a first half brace, but the Los Blancos managed to salvage a point thanks to Casemiro’s late goal.
Dennis was s surprised package for the Santiago Bernabeu fans as he imitated Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal celebration after scoring in the 39th minute, something which he had planned before the game.
Dennis said on Instagram Live “Me and Victor Osimhen were talking before the game because he plays in the Champions League and he said I’d score and I said I’ll score and celebrate like Ronaldo and it would be crazy.
“We were playing then I scored and I did the celebration.”
He added “The game was not in my head, I scored, I have done the celebration. I wanted the game to end, I was in a hurry to speak to Osimhen and Etebo who told me Madrid wouldl finish us. That’s why I wanted us to win.
“After the game, Etebo told us we tried and congratulated me.”
Dennis didn’t desist from his great performance as he bagged an assist in the return leg against Real Madrid last December but Club Brugge lost 3-1 to the Spanish side.
