Nigerian striker, Dennis names Premier League favourites, snubs Kanu, Okocha

Watford striker, Emmanuel Dennis, has snubbed Nigerian legends, Nwankwo Kanu, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, Yakubu Aiyegbeni and other legendary compatriots who were impressive in the Premier League at the peak of their careers.

The Super Eagles star instead named Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba; Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney; and Crystal Palace attacker, Wilfred Zaha; as his top three favourite Premier League stars.

Recall that Kanu enjoyed a trophy-laden career at Arsenal and Portsmouth, winning two Premier League titles and three FA Cups, while Aiyegbeni remains Nigeria’s most prolific striker in the Premier League following his exploits for Portsmouth, Everton, Middlesbrough, and Blackburn Rovers.

Asked to name his favourite players in the Premier League, Dennis told Watford TV, “Didier [Drogba] and Wilfried [Zaha] are my favourite Premier League players, I loved watching Drogba play, I love to watch Zaha, and I also loved to see Wayne [Rooney], scoring those crazy goals.”
