Video: Timothy Fosu-Mensah working hard ahead of pre-season with Manchester United

by Leo Nieboer

Timothy Fosu-Mensah is back in Manchester United kit and working hard ahead of the club’s pre-season tour.

The Dutchman enjoyed a superb campaign on loan at Crystal Palace last season, earning a regular place in the starting XI and receiving a call-up to his national team in the process.

He has returned to Man United and will hope to stake a claim for a place in Jose Mourinho‘s first team during pre-season, which kicks off on July 15.

Fosu-Mensah, following a holiday to Spain last week, has been putting in the hard yards on his own as he looks to get himself in prime condition for a crucial couple of weeks in the United States.

With the likes of Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic all set to have rests which extend beyond July 15 as a result of World Cup commitments, Fosu-Mensah – a factotum on the pitch, capable of featuring in a number of positions – has a superb chance to impose himself during the early stages of the pre-season tour.

Mourinho’s use of Scott McTominay last season was a monument to how the Portuguese will always reward hard graft. Fosu-Mensah, emboldened by last season’s experience of fighting relegation, will certainly be a player to watch in the U.S.
