Timothy Fosu-Mensah has sent a message of gratitude to Manchester United fans for their support over 2016.
The Dutchman, in what has been a groundbreaking year, made his first team debut against Arsenal back in Feburary and went on to make ten appearances under Louis van Gaal.
Fosu-Mensah took to social media to send supporters a message of thanks following an excellent year.

This has been a truly sensational year for the 18-year-old. He broke into a Man United side deprived of confidence, struggling to thrive within the confined limits of van Gaal’s uninspiring system.
But much like fellow youngsters Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, the Dutchman refused to fall into the pit of mediocrity installed by the former manager, producing a number of powerful, commanding performances across the back.
Chances have been hard to come by under Mourinho, with Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian all now featuring on a regular basis after failing to secure a place in the starting XI last season, but the future looks unavoidably bright for the 18-year-old.
