Nigeria international Emmanuel Dennis has revealed that Didier Drogba and Wilfried Zaha are his favourite Premier League players.
Drogba, who is now retired, had two spells with Chelsea FC and the Ivorian legend helped the team win four Premier League titles and he is considered to be one of the club’s greatest players.
While Drogba’s compatriot Zaha is currently on the books of Crystal Palace and he is among the top wingers in the Premier League.
Dennis, who recently joined Premier League side Watford FC from Belgian champions Club Brugge, opened up about his love for the league.
“Didier [Drogba] and Wilfried [Zaha] are my favourite Premier League players,” Dennis told Watford TV.
“I loved watching Droga play, I love to watch Zaha and I also loved to see Wayne [Rooney], scoring those crazy goals.”
The 23-year-old striker also discussed his admiration for Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos.
“Neymar, Cristiano [Ronaldo], and Messi there is a lot of players you can watch and learn from them, I also love Sergio [Ramos],” he added.
“I am a fan of the guy [Ramos], very crazy defender with a lot of experience, strong on everything he does but I know like against this guy.
“He is old now and I am faster than him, so I will use my speed and also use my experience to beat him.”
Dennis has three caps for Nigeria and he is yet to score for the Super Eagles.
