Jeremie Frimpong reveals why he snubbed England for Holland

Published on: 14 October 2021

Bayer Leverkusen right-back, Jeremie Frimpong has confirmed he's now committed to Holland.

The 20-year-old is yet to be called up to Holland but he has represented the country at under-19 and under-20 level.

He decided he would represent the senior team earlier this year.

Frimpong was in two minds about the decision, as he could have chosen to play for Ghana instead or England.

Born in Amsterdam, he moved to England aged seven before teaming up with the Manchester City academy.

And though the youngster speaks with a slight Mancunian accent, as well as being unable to speak Dutch, he never wanted to play for the Three Lions.

When asked if he could represent England Frimpong told ESPN Netherlands: "I can but England's out the way.

"I'm not English, I'm Dutch. Yes of course (it was a dream).

"As a young kid, I wanted to play for my country, to play for Holland."
