How Twitter reacted to Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s switch from Manchester United to Crystal Palace

Written by

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

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

Speaking to the Palace official website, Fosu-Mensah 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.”

Fosu-Mensah made the breakthrough into the Manchester United starting eleven under Louis van Gaal, making 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 Jose Mourinho’s arrival last year.
