Super Eagles star, Emmanuel Dennis has expressed delight after Club Brugge secured their first win of the season.
The former Belgian champions beat KRC Genk 2-1 inside an empty Luminus Arena. The Nigerian was proud creating the assist for Hans Vanaken and also explained why he was unable to get a goal for himself during the encounter over the weekend.
“Clearly I’m happy that we grabbed the three points,” he told the club’s official website. “With all the negative criticism we have been given in the past week, we were extra motivated to claim the full points. And we succeeded, so you can only be happy about that.
“Also with the fact that we managed to really bring pain to Genk, particularly in the first half. We really should have scored more than once, I believe. Fortunately Hans was really well-positioned to head in one of my crosses from the wing, offering us a 1-0 lead as we headed for the dressing room.
“I came inches close to tapping in at 0-2, but in all honesty, that cross was really hard which was probably why I came so close.”
