Abass Issah to join FC Utrecht

The attacker will head to the Netherlands on loan

Abass Issah made one Bundesliga appearance for the Zerofivers during the 2018/19 season.

Abass Issah will join FC Utrecht on loan for the upcoming season. The 20-year-old Ghanaian forward will head to the Eredivisie to collect more game experience. Issah came to Mainz 05 last summer from Olimpija Ljubljana and made one Bundesliga appearance for the Zerofivers this past season.

“We are absolutely convinced of Abass Issah’s quality as a player. He fit in well with the squad over the past year and progressed well during the winter. He was on a good path but then was forced to miss out due to a long-term muscle injury. Getting game time at a high level—ideally every weekend—is important in order to get to the next level. FC Utrecht are a top six side in the Eredivisie, and are a good fit for Abass. We are certain that he will return next summer with plenty of goals and assists from the Netherlands in order to strengthen our squad during the 2020/2021 season,” said Mainz sporting director Rouven Schröder.
