News broke out this morning on various English media outlets that .ers of English Championship side Watford openly celebrated the exit of Emmanuel Dennis from the club.
Dennis joined Nottingham Forest for a deal that could rise to £20 million with several add ons and while Watford will feel his departure will affect their aim of gaining instant promotion back to the English Premier League, his teammates feel otherwise.
Many of his teammates don’t have a relationship with him and even on social media he follows just ten of them including his four teammates in the senior national team of Nigeria. Although he is close to Ismaila Saar, his closest ally is Brazilian João Pedro.
Most of his teammates resent his cocky attitude which they feel affects the atmosp. in the dressing room. He keeps to himself more and carries himself as someone who is bigger than the rest of his teammates.
Coaches of Watford have tried to manage his attitude which hasn’t been the case with the senior national team of Nigeria w. erstwhile coach Gernot Rohr ignored him for over a year, despite his good goal return for Watford.
The reports teams got after a background check is why most shy away from him when Watford got relegated despite his ten goals last season. Even newly promoted Nottingham Forest agreed to sign him after he promised to be of good behaviour when he spoke with the coach of the team Steve Cooper.
