Under-fire Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz introduced the Ghanaian as a replacement for Jamaican Leon Bailey with 16 minutes left on the clock, at the same point which Demarai Gray was also introduced into the game.

The two played an influential role as Leverkusen finally sealed off the victory.

Meanwhile his Dutch-born Ghanaian compatriot Timothy Fosu-Mensah who also joined Leverkusen from Manchester United within the same period started the game for the victor and was replaced after the hour mark.

Frimpong is a former player for Manchester City and was regarded as one of the best talents in the Man City academy.
