Twitter reaction to United’s Timothy Fosu-Mensah joining for the new season

Crystal Palace, Manchester United 0 Comment 17

Crystal Palace’s smart summer of business continued on Thursday afternoon after it was annouced that they have secured the services of Manchester United’s Timothy Fosu-Mensah for the new season.

The 19-year-old will join the Blues’ Ruben Loftus-Cheek in becoming the second player to arrive at Selhurst Park on a season-long loan, and could be in books to start against Huddersfield on Saturday.

Speaking to the club official website, he said:

“The manager spoke to me about coming down to join Crystal Palace and it was clear that he wanted me to be part of his squad which as a player gives you a great feeling straight away.

“I must now repay that back by putting in some good performances for the club.

“I am only 19 years old and still have a lot to learn and therefore getting the opportunity to play more games on a regular basis will help my development.”

He made the breakthrough into the Red Devils starting eleven under Louis van Gaal, registering ten appearances in the 2015-16 season and impressing with how quickly he adapted to first-team football at Old Trafford, but opportunities have been limited since Mourinho’s arrival last year.
