Man of the moment and Super Eagles forward, Emmanuel Dennis has revealed the reason behind his celebration at the Santiago Bernabeu last night, while also saying his favourite player in the world.
The 21-year-old joined the elusive list of Nigerians to have scored against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu after he scored a brace in Club Brugge’s 2-2 draw against Real Madrid.
His brace also meant he’s the seventh player to score multiple goals in a Champions League away match against Real Madrid, after Alessandro Del Piero, Alexandre Pato, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Lionel Messi, Mario Mandzukic and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
After scoring his second of the night, Dennis celebrated by mimicking the popular Ronaldo ‘Si’ celebration in front of the Bernabeu fans.
Speaking after the match, the Nigerian international revealed he celebrated like that because Ronaldo is his favourite player in the world.

“Yes because I like Ronaldo, he is my favourite player in the world and I am not happy he left Madrid, so I just do the celebration to show them ( Madrid fans) they miss something.
