Dennis has three international caps, making substitute appearances against Ukraine, Brazil and Sierra Leone. Has he got a chance of working his way back into the Super Eagles squad ahead of the African Cup of Nations?
“Definitely. Gernot Rohr loves wingers as he likes to play an expansive 4-3-3 or a 3-5-2 and he needs direct players in those positions. Emmanuel falls into that category and you can see him getting back in the squad if he does well in England. He's got areas to work on and needs to regain his form, but I've known him since he was 15 and there is much more to come from him once he is settled.”
Rohr could be a regular at Watford games this season with the number of Super Eagles we have at Vicarage Road. Is there a real interest in the Hornets in Nigeria now we have so many of your countryman in our squad?
“Absolutely. Ighalo was a huge hit at Watford and it all started there. Apart from those who support Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool, everyone is rooting for Watford, even when you were in the Championship. Watford are well supported and every match there is watched, especially last season when you did so well at the end. You just have to look at the comments on Twitter and Instagram to see the fan base is growing and Emmanuel going there will only increase that. It's like a mini Nigeria at Watford and we joke that your Chief Scout must be from Nigeria.”
