I joined SV Darmstadt to develop as a young player - Ghanaian forward Braydon Manu

Published on: 13 June 2019

Ghanaian youngster Braydon Manu has revealed that 'the opportunity to develop as a young player' was the reason why he signed for Bundesliga II side SV Darmstadt in the on-going summer transfer window.

Manu joined Darmstadt on a free transfer after terminating his contract with third-tier side Hallescher FC.

"The presented concept of the club, as well as the game idea, especially in the last months of last season, have promised me a lot," he told the club's official website.

"I see good prospects for my development here with the lilies and I am convinced that Darmstadt is the right club for me," he added.

The 22-year-old penned a four-year deal with the club.

He featured in 62 games for Hallescher FC scoring 6 goals and making eight assists in his two-year stay in Southern Hasse.

Manager of Darmstadt SV Carsten Wehlmann is delighted by the arrival of the speedy winger insisting his acquisition will add some quality to his side.

"Braydon Manu brings a lot of pace and punch and has already played many professional games for his age. Braydon has become a regular in Halle last season, proving his qualities and talent. We believe he can give new impetus to our game forward with his skills," Carsten said.
