Club Brugge’s Emmanuel Dennis has revealed his love for Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, made him perform his celebration against Real Madrid.

Dennis scored a brace, as they held Zinedine Zidane’s side to a 2-2 draw in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League fixture.
After bagging the memorable first-half goals at Santiago Bernabeu, Dennis decided to troll Madrid supporters with Ronaldo’s iconic ‘Siii’ celebration.

“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.

“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,” Dennis told reporters after the game.
