The Dutch-born of Ghanaian descent has revealed that he is a dyed in the wool fan of Ghanaian giants, Asante Kotoko.
Bayer Leverkusen defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has professed his love for the Ghana Premier League heavyweights and explained that supporting Asante Kotoko is a family tradition.
The former Manchester United right-back is arrived in Ghana on Wednesday morning for summer holidays.
“I support Asante Kotoko even though I haven’t followed Ghana football that much”, Fosu-Mensah told Accra based radio station Happy FM in an interview
“Asante Kotoko is a tradition for the family. Hopefully, I will now follow some games in the Ghana Premier League”
Fosu-Mensah was born to Ghanaian parents in Amsterdam and represented the Netherlands at youth level.
He is still eligible to represent Ghana at the senior level despite playing for Netherlands per the new FIFA eligibility rules for playing below age 21.
Fosu-Mensah joined Bayer Leverkusen on a four-year deal from English Premier League side Manchester United last summer
