A rough season for Timothy Fosu-Mensah ended in the worst way possible earlier this month.

The Manchester United youngster suffered a knee injury which required ligament surgery while on loan at Fulham.

Fosu-Mensah underwent the operation today (25/4/19) and sent a message to supporters with an update that it had been successful.

 

Tough year

The Dutchman was beginning to show some promise late in the season under Scott Parker when he sustained his injury.

One highlight was The Sun reporting Fosu-Mensah had clocked the fastest pace of any player in the Premier League this season.

Now he faces a lengthy spell of rehab which is likely to cost him part of next season too. His contract at United runs until June 2020.
