Bayer Leverkusen and German international Jonathan Tah signed with Under Armour earlier this week. The Baltimore based company will provide the defender with cleats and apparel for on and off the field.
The 20-year-old is one of the rising stars in the Bundesliga and will wear the UA ClutchFit Force™ 2.0 soccer cleat.
“My style of football matches Under Armour’s philosophy of being ‘Aggressive, Young and Fearless.’ I’m proud of this new partnership, and plan to take my game to a new level, as I still have so much more that I want to accomplish in football. I believe Under Armour is the best partner to help me achieve so much more,” explained Tah.
Tah worked his way up the ranks for the German national team. He was captain for the Under-17 and U19 sides and played with the U-21 team before getting his first call-up to the senior team against England last month. For his club soccer, Tah started with his hometown club of Hamburger SV before moving to Fortuna Dusseldorf and finally to Leverkusen.
Tah joins Under Armour’s European football talent roster that includes Granit Xhaka (Borussia Mönchengladbach) and Memphis Depay (Manchester United). In July 2016, the global sports brand will become kit partner to FC St. Pauli.
