Fosu Mensah has opened up on his switch to German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen from Manchester United in an interview with Accra-based radio station Happy FM.
The 23-year-old disclosed that his decision to leave the club was to get more regular football action after being relegated to the bench.
“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”
Fosu-Mensah went on two loan spells from Old Trafford with Crystal Palace and Fulham before injury ruled him out for a longer spell.
He left Manchester United in the January transfer window for an undisclosed fee
