Club Brugge have been left ruing their decision to let Emmanuel Dennis join Watford for €4m this summer, as he continues to shine for the Hornets.
That’s according to Voetbal Nieuws, who say the move is now being viewed as an ‘expensive misjudgement’ by the Belgian side.
They explain that Brugge decided to let Dennis go in the summer because he had made it impossible for him to stay with his ‘extra sporting escapades’.
That, coupled with a disappointing loan spell at FC Koln, meant they were happy to take the ‘limited sum’ of €4m when Watford offered it.
That, though, has come back to haunt them as Dennis has ‘completely unbolted’ at Vicarage Road after a short adjustment period.
On Wednesday night, he scored against leaders Chelsea, his third goal in as many games and fifth this season, taking his tally to five goals and five assists in 12 Premier League games this season.
That’s something only six other players have managed to do, and it’s earned him plenty of praise, with Troy Deeney even suggesting he could become a Watford legend if he carries on the way he has.
Indeed, Voetbal Nieuws say if he continues at this pace, it won’t be long before the big clubs come ‘waving their millions’ for him.
At that point, the decision to sell to Watford for €4m will look even more foolish, with the deal considered a ‘hugely expensive blunder’ up to now.
