Timothy Fosu-Mensah Reveals Heartbrake Of Watching Ghana Lose To Uruguay At 2010 World Cup
Dutch-born Ghanaian defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah says watching Ghana lose a game makes him emotional.
The 23-year-old revealed how painful it was watching Ghana lose to Uruguay eleven years ago at the FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
Fosu-Mensah opted to represent Holland at international level, living the door closed on Ghana, although there is a slim chance of getting him to play for the Black Stars.
“I have been watching Ghana, especially the 2010 World Cup,” Fosu-Mensah told Citi Sports.
“It was the first time Kevin Prince Boateng joined the national team.
“Recently I have seen that unfortunately they lost [1-0] to Morocco, but yeah I have been watching.
The Ajax Academy graduate left Manchester United in January to join Bayer Leverkusen after 5 years in England.
“I get emotional when they [Ghana] lose, especially against Uruguay during the 2010 World Cup,” he continued.
“This is because in Amsterdam we lived in a flat with a lot of other Ghanaians.
“When that happened, it was painful but when Ghana was scoring my brother and I would open the door and shout in celebration.
“When you think about it, it is special.”
Fosu-Mensah is in Ghana for holidays after spending most of his life in Europe.
