We still remember the time when Timothy Fosu-Mensah was the next big thing at Manchester United under Louis Van-Gaal.
Primarily used in the Defensive Midfield role by the Dutch manager, Fosu-Mensah had all the talent and the work ethic in the world to make his name at United. Alas! what happened to him?
Now 21-years-old, the Dutch Star has had 2 underwhelming spells at Crystal Palace and Fulham respectively.
The United fans will tell you that Right Back is not really his position, but that’s where he has been used during his loan spells and that has meant for the loss of his form and confidence.
United fans are now torn whether he can cut it at Old Trafford:
If fosu mensah comes back to Man Utd I hope we don’t play him full back that’s not his position anyone who watched his youths days know he’s a top top midfielder think it was LVG who brought him at full back. Says it all about Utd everything back to front unbalanced

TFM is a midfielder.
I think he will excel in that role.

Always felt this. I watched his videos when he was at the academy and kid was a good midfielder.

He’s overrated by United Fans. He can’t cut it for Fulham or Crystal Palace so how on earth is he going to make it at United. The game against city showed he can’t compete at the top level.

Garner > Fosu-Mensah
Timbo was one of my faves coming through but his time is up. Couldn’t do it at Palace and can’t at Fulham either. Out of position? Yes. But the qualities we thought he had aren’t there to see. Balance, passing, pace, calmness on the ball.. he’s the opposite.
