Fosu Mensah returns to Man United after Fulham stint

Netherlands defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has returned to parent club Manchester United after having surgery on a knee ligament injury.

Mensah joined the English Premier League newbies in August last year after a loan stint with Crystal Palace last season, playing regularly before Aaron Wan-Bissaka's emergence at right-back.

A versatile player who can play across the back four and in central midfield, Fosu-Mensah was seen as a shrewd acquisition by Fulham following their promotion.

But his performances at Craven Cottage have made him a regular target for criticism and he has played just 12 times in the Premier League, the latest against Everton on Saturday seeing him sustain a knee injury.

Rehabilitation

Fosu-Mensah requires surgery and his subsequent rehabilitation will be at United, indicating the defender's time at Fulham – whose relegation has been confirmed – is over.

In a statement, Fulham noted: “Following an assessment of an injury sustained in the recent Fulham versus Everton game, Timothy Fosu-Mensah will undergo knee ligament surgery. He will return to Manchester United for rehabilitation.”
