“Dennis is fit, but not in our selection. He didn’t follow the club’s rules, that’s all I want to say about that,” he said.
“I prefer to concentrate on the players who are available to me.”
Dennis who has been with the Belgian outfit since in 2017 has a Champions League goal to his name which he scored on the opening group matchday away at Zenit St.Petersburg.
He is still without a goal in seven games in the Belgian league. He was part of the Super Eagles squad in the last international window but didn’t play in any of the two games against Sierra Leone.
