Nottingham Forest’s Emmanuel Dennis reveals his football idol
Emmanuel Dennis, a recent addition to Nottingham Forest, has claimed that Brazilian football legend Ronaldinho was his childhood hero.
Dennis joined the Reds last week from Watford after making 33 Premier League starts the previous year and scoring 10 goals in those games.
The dynamic attacker, who draws inspiration from his childhood hero Ronaldinho, promises to thrill Forest fans with his speed and talent.
“My idol growing up was Ronaldinho,” the 24-year-old said. “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.
“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.”
