“I left Manchester United because I wanted to play football regularly. For me, the most important thing is to play but I wasn’t getting that," Fosu-Mensah told Happy FM

"Manchester United was even prepared to offer me a new contract and wanted me to stay.I had to make that tough decision and it wasn’t an easy one to make”
