ANTOINE Semenyo will be hounding Premier League backlines – promising opposition defences that he will be a “dog” in pursuit of three points.

A January signing in 2023 for a fee north of £10million from Bristol City, Semenyo took his time in settling into life at AFC Bournemouth.

Ghanaian international Semenyo has impressed this campaign, with eight goals in 31 Premier League appearances.

But it is not just Semenyo’s goalscoring returns that have enamoured the attacker to Cherries supporters in his first full season at Dean Court, with the winger chasing anything that moves on the football pitch.

Semenyo has proved a perfect fit for Andoni Iraola’s tactics, the high-octane press getting the most out of the former Bristol City man.

The 24-year-old will hope to start this afternoon as Cherries host Brentford in their penultimate Premier League game.

Semenyo explained: “Being direct is one of my key attributes - and defenders don’t like that.

“The manager wants chaos and it suits me - as I like chaos and it fits perfectly for me.

“It doesn’t matter who I am up against. To be honest I don’t really fear anyone.

“I am at an age now where I feel physically blessed and I’ve got ability on the ball.

“I know when I go out there pressing a defender I’m thinking: ‘You’re getting a dog, honestly, and I am ducking and diving.

“I am a dog; I’m running at everyone and that suits me.”
