Emmanuel Dennis loses older brother Popti during regatta in Lagos

A period of mourning awaits Emmanuel Dennis, seeing his older brother (Popti Emannuel Dennis) pass away during a sailing race in Lagos, Nigeria. His boat capsized for unknown reasons.

Despite a thorough search-and-rescue, all help came too late. Popti Emmanuel Dennis is a very familiar name in Nigeria as an experienced sailor, representing his country a.o. at the Africa Games. As a member of the Nigerian Sea forces, he took part in many international regatta.


Club's forward left the team after the game in Antwerp on Sunday to attend the funeral taking place today. Dennis is expected back in Belgium on Thursday evening.

The entire Club Brugge family wishes to offer its deepest condolences to the family of Emmanuel Dennis.
