Club Brugge hero Emmanuel Dennis: I wanted to show Real Madrid what they'd lost

Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis admits his goal celebration last night was a swipe at Real Madrid.

The Nigerian struck twice in the 2-2 Champions League draw and followed up with a 'Cristiano Ronaldo' celebration.

Afterwards, Dennis explained his actions: "I like Cristiano and for me he is the best player in the world.

"I became sad when he left Madrid and celebrated my goals to show that they had lost something."

He added: "I am happy to have scored two goals, we really wanted to win the game and we were not far away, so we have to settle for a point, which is already a good result."
