Nigerian forward Emmanuel Dennis has revealed why he failed to make an impact at FC Cologne last season.
Dennis signed for FC Cologne on loan from Belgian side Club Brugge in January 2021, but struggled for form and was subsequently dropped from the squad.
Dennis scored once in nine appearances, and the Koln Sporting Director Horst Heldt later labeled him as a bad piece of business.
In an interview with Belgian outfit Het Nieuwsbald, Dennis who has since found his form in the premier league with Watford, said he regret not helping the club and revealed he was dealing with mental and injury problems at the time.
“I am glad that they (Koln) stayed [up], but I feel guilty because I couldn’t help the club,” Dennis stated.
“I was tired of Belgium and had no more fun. I was dead in the head, completely dead. The worst thing was that I took thus bad feeling with me to Germany in January. I had mental problems when I was loaned to Cologne.”
The Nigerian international is one of the the revelations in the English Premier League this season, recording three goals and three assists for Watford.
