The ex-Stoke City man plays with two Nigerians at Watford, but it is Emmanuel Dennis that has made a huge impression on him at Vicarage Road
Super Eagles and Watford star Peter Etebo has praised his club and national teammate Emmanuel Dennis, stating that the former Club Brugge striker strikes fear in opponents’ hearts because of his skill.
The Nigerian duo joined the Hornets during the last transfer window, but Dennis has quickly made a name for himself with his outstanding displays for the newly-promoted side.
Dennis has been in top form since the opening day of the Premier League, having scored seven goals and provided five assists. Only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has been involved in more goals in the league this season.
Despite Watford’s managerial switch from Xisco Munoz to Claudio Ranieri, the Nigerian forward has remained the focal point of the Hornets’ attack.
Etebo believes his teammate has got all the attributes of a good footballer.
“He’s so good, he has got everything,” Etebo said in an Interview via Watford’s Twitter.
“He has got good pace, good dribbling, and he can take on defenders.
“And you know one thing for sure, when a defender sees a striker that is so fast, and has good dribbling, and can control the ball really well, they get scared though.”
He then added, “I just hope that at the end of the season, everything is gonna work out for him.”
Etebo is currently out injured, which has made his loan spell frustrating. However, he is already on the road to recovery.
