WHY I CHOSE GERMANY OVER GHANA, HENRICHS REVEALS
The Bayer Leverkusen full-back sheds light on pledging his international allegiance to Die Mannschaft over the Black Stars
Germany youngster Benjamin Henrichs has lifted the lid on his decision to commit his international future to the 2014 world champions ahead of Ghana. Born to a German father and a Ghanaian mother in Bocholt, the Bayer Leverkusen right-back made two appearances as Joachim Low’s outfit beat Chile to win the 2017 Fifa Confederations Cup in Russia.
He made his debut for Die Mannschaft in an 8-0 triumph over San Marino in November last year.
Germany asked me at the age of 14 to play for their under-15 national team and I didn’t hear anything from Ghana until now,” Henrichs, who is currently on holiday in Ghana, told Atinka TV.
Actually, I thought about it [playing for Ghana], maybe at the beginning, because I saw players like [Michael] Essien playing for Ghana.. Source: Goal.com
