Ousman Manneh (born 10 March 1997) is a Gambian footballer who plays as a striker for SV Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga.

Club career
Early career
In 2004 Manneh started training at the Rush Soccer Academy, a United States soccer franchise for children and youth in Bakau.

At the age of 17 he fled the dictatorship in his home country Gambia reaching Bremen and living in the refugee camp of Lesum. Following a trial he joined the Blumenthaler SV U-18 team before playing for the U-19 side in the youth regional league, the second-tier youth league in Germany, where he scored 15 goals in 11 matches. These performances earned him trials with FC St. Pauli, Hamburg, Schalke 04 and Wolfsburg.

Werder Bremen
Having chosen to stay in Bremen and play for Werder Bremen, Manneh initially played for the club's youth team. On 10 March 2015, he signed a three-year contract with the club running until summer 2018.

On 25 July 2015, he made his 3. Liga debut for the reserves against Hansa Rostock scoring the winning goal in a 1–2 away win. Four days later, he made his first appearance for the first team; having entered the pitch after 60 minutes he scored four goals in 15 minutes in a 7–0 friendly match win against SV Wilhelmshaven.

After scoring and assisting two goals each in his first seven appearances for the reserves in the 2016–17 season, Manneh made his full Bundesliga debut on 21 September 2016 in a 1–2 home defeat to Mainz 05 before being replaced by Lennart Thy in the 55th minute. He also started in the following match three days later, a 2–1 win against VfL Wolfsburg, Werder Bremen's first victory of the season, being substituted off after 73 minutes.

Manneh scored his first Bundesliga goal on 15 October, in Werder Bremen's 2–1 win against Bayer Leverkusen.
