Description:

Benjamin Henrichs is a product of the youth academy of Bayer Leverkusen. This season he became a central position in the youth team, which played very well in the Bundesliga U-19. He had good games in UEFA Youth League as well, although Bayer were knocked out in the group stages in that tournament. Benjamin was a captain and a leader of German national team at UEFA European Under-17 Championship, but the young German generation failed, earning only one point. Despite that, Henrichs was noted as one of the TOP 10 “players to keep an eye on” by UEFA.com.

 

Quotes:

“I think Leverkusen’s youth setup is really good. Plenty of players have made the breakthrough into professional football and there are many former Leverkusen youth players in the second and third divisions too.”

(Benjamin Henrichs)

 

“The Bayer 04 Leverkusen midfielder already emits an air of authority on the ball. Equally comfortable seeking possession as he is spreading play, Henrichs also showed he had an eye for goal. Not only his tall frame made him stand head and shoulders above his opponents; an uncanny maturity made him a particularly imposing presence.”
