Timothy Fosu-Mensah has suffered a torn ACL at Bayer Leverkusen, report Voetbal Zone.
The Dutch outlet report Fosu-Mensah has confirmed directly to them that he has suffered an ACL tear.
Fosu-Mensah quit Manchester United in January to sign with Bayer Leverkusen in pursuit of first team football.
His season is now over and he faces a battle just to play again in 2021.
Fosu-Mensah made his Manchester United debut five years ago in a win over Arsenal under Louis van Gaal.
He has failed to live up to his potential, with an ACL injury suffered while at Fulham in January 2019 one of the reasons for this.
After battling back and playing for United’s first team last year, even featuring in a FA Cup semi-final and the Champions League, Fosu-Mensah left the club in January months before his contract was due to expire.
He suffered his latest knee injury in Leverkusen’s game on Sunday against Freiburg and was substituted at half-time.
Manager Peter Bosz said after the game, quoted by AD.nl: “I hope it’s not true, but I’m afraid it’s something with the cruciate ligament again.”
Bosz added that the injury is to the ‘other knee’ to the one Fosu-Mensah suffered his previous ACL tear on.
The Dutchman was making his seventh appearance for Leverkusen since joining the club in January.
We all wish him the very best in his recovery. It’s such cruel luck for Fosu-Mensah to suffer another serious injury just as his career was looking up.
