Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis

The Nigeria international forward will be absent when the Belgians lock horns with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men on Thursday

Club Brugge have confirmed that Emmanuel Dennis will not play a part in Thursday’s Europa League clash at Manchester United.

The Nigeria international suffered an injury in Sunday’s 1-0 win over Sporting Charleroi at Jan Breydelstadion.

As a result, he has not been picked among the 22-man squad for the showdown at Old Trafford alongside captain Ruud Vormer.

Dennis scored the Blue-Black’s only goal in the last-32 first leg fixture that ended 1-1 after  Anthony Martial’s equaliser.

His compatriot David Okereke, Cote d’Ivoire internationals Odilon Kossounou and Simon Deli, Angola’s Clinton Mata, as well as South Africa’s Percy Tau, made the cut.

Senegalese forward Krepin Diatta makes a return to the squad after injury ruled him out of the first-leg.

Victory for the Belgians or a high-scoring draw will propel Philippe Clement’s team to the next round of the competition.
