Elvis Manu Feyenoord

Dutch-born Ghanaian attacker Elvis Manu was in his elements as he brilliantly assisted three goals for Feyenoord in their 4-0 trouncing of Go Ahead Eagles in the Dutch Eredivisie on Saturday.

The 21-year-old forced Giliano Wijnaldum to score an own-goal before successively setting up the rest of Feyenoord’s three goals at the De Adelaarshorst.

Manu, who is regarded as Feyenoord’s best player forced the opening goal for Feyenoord in the 28th minute before turning the architect to set up Jens Toornstra, Colin Kazim-Richards and Mitchell te Vrede for the rest of the goals.

Though he is yet to score a league goal for Feyenoord, he has been overly impressive in their story in the season so far and has assisted as many as six goals since the start the league season.

Manu has declared his intentions to play for Ghana though he is representing the Dutch at U21 levels.
