Nigerian striker Emmanuel Dennis has explained why he did Cristiano Ronaldo's celebration after scoring against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.
Dennis scored Club Brugge's two goals in a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid on the UEFA Champions League Match Day 2.
"Yes, I did a Cristiano Ronaldo goal celebration when I scored. I've been a Cristiano fan forever and I was very upset when he left Madrid. So I decided that if I scored in the Bernabeu tonight that's what I'd do," Dennis said after the game.
"Everyone expected them to beat us easily. We prepared for them, we believed and we had a good feeling.
"We took the lead with two goals, and obviously it would have been better to have beaten them too. I am a little bit disappointed in a way, but also happy that we won a point against a big team."
"We train a lot, we train hard and we came here to make Ramos and Varane run," he added.
"They are defenders – defenders don't like to run! Most teams come here and play in a block, but we broke from the block and worked like mad."
The 21-year-old and South Africa's Percy Tau were constant threats for the hosts, with both stars linking up to open the scoring in Madrid.
