Watford star and former Arsenal transfer target Emmanuel Dennis reveals he had to stop supporting Gunners for his health

WATFORD star Emmanuel Dennis gave up supporting Arsenal because it was causing him too much heartache.

The striker, 24, revealed he occasionally cried after Arsenal lost games and explained being a fan was not good for his health.

Now he is focusing on himself and trying to help the Hornets escape relegation, and it seems that has helped his form too.

He told Sky Sports: "I used to be an Arsenal fan. I like Cesc Fabregas.

"But I'm no more an Arsenal fan. I was so much into Arsenal sometimes I could cry when they lose. That wasn't good for me.

"So I was like, 'nah, I'm going to stick to myself and don't care much because it's not good for my health'. It's just me and myself right now."

Dennis scored his seventh Premier League goal of the season against Brentford on Friday, taking his total goal contributions to 12 from 15 games.

That places him second in the rankings behind only Mo Salah – the Egyptian, Jamie Vardy and Diogo Jota are the only players to have scored more goals than the Nigerian this term.

It is possible Arsenal are ruing their decision not to sign Dennis when they had the chance to last year.

Dennis' agent Drew Uyi revealed both Arsenal and Manchester United wanted Dennis but both refused to pay the £25million Club Brugge wanted.

Instead, he stayed in Belgium until last summer with Watford picking him up for just £3.4m ahead of the current campaign.
