Dennis Bonaventure Optimistic Of Manchester United’s Fall At Old Trafford
Dennis Bonaventure Forsees Man United’s Europa League Exit
Club Brugge’s Forward Dennis Bonaventure believes his club can bring Manchester United’s Europa League campaign to an end in the return fixture at Old Trafford.
Bonaventure’s strike was cancelled out by Anthony Martial as both teams shared spoils at Belgium.
However, the Super Eagles’ striker is optimistic ahead of the return leg slated for March 27 at England.
“We wanted the victory, but it didn’t work. We are now working towards the return match at Old Trafford. Everything is possible in football, we’ll see what happens there,” Dennis told the club website.
The 22-year-old deduced that his club were unlucky in front of goal in their first-leg faceoff against the English club and blamed VAR for not awarding what he believed to have being a penalty to his team.
“In the second half we had a good chance of going 2-1 up, but we couldn’t score. In the first half, we also had some good chances. And then there was that penalty case at the start of the game, but VAR did not intervene. I thought it was a red card because he (United keeper Sergio Romero) came at me with both feet. The goalkeeper hit me fully and certainly did not touch the ball.”
The former Zorya Luyansk striker who was voted MOTM against the Red Devils got into limelight in last season’s UEFA Champions League for grabbing a brace against a Real Madrid team that paraded the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos.
Dennis made his Super Eagles debut in a friendly against Ukraine six months ago.
