Emmanuel Dennis Said Watford Are In A 'F***ed Up Situation' On TV

Emmanuel Dennis was possibly too honest following Watford's win over Aston Villa, swearing in his television interview when revealing what Roy Hodgson had said about the club's situation.


It's not been an easy season for Watford back in the Premier League, having bounced straight back up into the top tier following one season in the Championship.

The loss to fellow relegation candidates Norwich, courtesy of Josh Sargent's scorpion kick, saw the end to Claudio Ranieri's predictably short time in charge of the club.


Ranieri was replaced by one of the few active managers older than him, in the shape of Hodgson. The former England boss had gone three games without his scoring ahead of Saturday's game with Villa, and was already looking on thin ice.

However they earned all three points against Steven Gerrard's team, thanks to Dennis' 78th minute strike and the Nigerian was interviewed after full time.

Whilst speaking to the BBC, the 24-year-old let it slip that Hodgson had admitted the team were in a 'f***ed up situation.'


Dennis has been the biggest positive for the Hornets this season, and his winner against Villa was his ninth Premier League goal of the campaign.

It's already the striker's best league goal scoring season of his career to date, with the former Club Brugge forward previously only scoring at most seven goals in a league campaign.

His latest strike, coupled with Norwich City's loss to Liverpool, put the Hertfordshire side back into 18th place and just four points behind Newcastle United.

There were fears just last month that he might become disillusioned at life at Watford, after the club wouldn't allow him to go to the Africa Cup of Nations to represent Nigeria in Cameroon, with his national team failing to call him up within the deadline.

Saturday's gaffe isn't the first time that Dennis has been willing to tell the truth since moving to England last summer, with the former Koln loanee also admitting he used to be an Arsenal fan.

The striker explained that liking Cesc Fabregas was why he supported the Gunners but that they weren't actually good for his health so no longer followed them.

Even with their own win on Saturday, against Brentford, even the most ardent of Arsenal fans probably wouldn't disagree with Dennis' assessment.
