Ghana attacker Elvis Manu gets playing time at English side Brighton

Ghana attacker Elvis Manu was handed playing time by English Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion when they shared the spoils in a 0-0 draw Brentford on Saturday. 

The 22-year-old came off the bench in the 68th minute to replace team-mate Tomer Hemed at the Griffin Park as the two sides failed to hit the back of the net.

Manu arrived from Feyenoord at the start of the season but has failed to command a regular playing time at the Seagulls.

The Dordrecht-born forward who bagged 12 goals in all competitions for Feyenoord last season is yet to start in any of the six games he has played this season.

His appearances for Chris Hughton’s side off the bench cameo displays culminating 88 minutes.

But he playing minutes were increased as he came off the bench to play some 22 minutes.

He has completed his switch from the Dutch nationality to West African giants – Ghana. Manu had represented the European giants at various youth levels.

He held talks with Ghana coach Avram Grant before making up his mind to commit his international future to Ghana.
