New Nottingham Forest forward, Emmanuel Dennis has revealed that while entertaining the fans with dribbles and showboating, he also intends to score goals and make assists.
The forward joined Nottingham Forest for £20 million this summer from Watford and he is expected to make an instant mark.
Dennis is famous for his nutmegs, making the most last season (21). The 24-year-old has admitted he draws his showboating and flair inspiration from Brazilian legend and one of the Kings of Joga Bonito, Ronaldinho.
Speaking to the Nottingham Forest media about his style of play, Dennis said:
“My idol growing up was Ronaldinho, He’s the reason I’m a footballer today.
“I just love everything about that guy and his talent with a football inspires me a lot. When I play, I just like to entertain people and have fun.
“I really like to nutmeg people. I had the most nutmegs in Europe last season which was crazy.”
The Nigerian International added that he is not only playing football to entertain fans but to provide good end product in front of goals.
“I just love to have fun on the pitch, but I also want to score goals and add assists.
“I don’t really set targets, I just like to go and play and express myself.”
Dennis may make his debut for Nottingham Forest against Everton on Saturday August 20, 2022.
