Timothy Fosu-Mensah has not had the greatest loan spell at Fulham as the Cottagers were relegated from the Premier League.
Despite spending savage money last summer, the London side ditched managers and suffered one of the worst relegations in recent times.
Fosu-Mensah saw his time limited in the side after a decent start. Throughout the entire season, he has managed less than 1,000 minutes of first-team football and while there are still games left for Fulham to play, few positives will be taken from his recent spell down South.
He recently took to Twitter to apologise to the Fulham fans for not being able to keep them up, describe the club as “fantastic” and predicting their return to the top flight.
“I want to apologise to all the amazing fans and say I’m sorry I couldn’t help keep the club up this season,” Fosu-Mensah said in a tweet. “We did all we could but it just wasn’t enough. It’s a fantastic club and I know you will be back in the premier club very soon #coyw”
The 21-year-old will return to United at the end of the season, but who know what’s in store after that?
United are in need of defenders – better than what they have – but there are no guarantees that Fosu-Mensah meets the required standard. His contract at Old Trafford runs until 2020, so it might be worth giving him some chances next season.
It would be a shame to see another talent slip away and Solskjaer is probably looking forward to giving the lad a chance. Let’s not forget he is a Netherlands international after all.
