Dennis names Premier League favourites, snubs Kanu, Okocha

Emmanuel Dennis

Nwankwo Kanu, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, and other Nigerian luminaries who shone in the Premier League at the height of their careers have been ignored by Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis.

Instead, the Super Eagles star chose Didier Drogba of Chelsea, Wayne Rooney of Manchester United, and Wilfred Zaha of Crystal Palace as his top three favorite Premier League player.

Recall that Kanu enjoyed a trophy-laden career at Arsenal and Portsmouth, winning two 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.

Okocha, meanwhile, narrowly missed out on winning a title in England.

The former Bolton Wanderers midfielder is still spoken of in high esteem for his brilliant technique and skills on the ball.

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.”
