Dennis: “I’m Really Proud Of The Team”

By: Watford FC Staff

Emmanuel Dennis praised Watford’s performance and hard work after their 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea, and reflected positively on his time so far at Watford, looking forward to a bright future at the club.

Dennis scored his sixth goal of the season in impressive fashion in the first half, responding to Mason Mount’s goal for the Blues.

Thomas Tuchel’s side ultimately took the points, but the Nigeria forward is pleased with the progress he and his teammates are making.

The goal continues a great spell of form for Dennis, his 11th direct goal contribution of the season, and the attacker is enjoying life in the Premier League.

“I’m really proud of the team because we played really well,” Dennis said.

“The result is unfortunate, they were lucky to take the three points. The intensity was good and we’re slowly understanding the way the manager wants us to play. We can see the progress in how we play so I’m really proud of the team, we just need to keep working hard and the results will come.

“I knew if I tried to shoot he was going to open his legs and I was lucky to score in the end. I’m happy with the goal but in the end we didn’t get the three points.

“I’m just doing my job, I’m really happy I’m here and I’m enjoying being part of the team. I’m training well and being positive, and I’m really happy.”
