OUTSIDE MLS: Manneh began his professional career in his native country of The Gambia in 2009 for Steve Biko FC, scoring 17 goals in 12 matches. After migrating to the United States in 2010, Manneh played for Austin Aztex in the USL PDL for the 2012 season. Won the 2015 Amway Canadian Championship with Vancouver, and also appeared in the 2015-16 Concacaf Champions League for the Whitecaps.
