Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s season at Bayer Leverkusen is already over after the former Manchester United defender suffered a serious injury last weekend.
The 23-year-old, who is no stranger to bad injuries, suffered an ACL tear during Sunday’s Bundesliga match against Freiburg. This unfortunately saw Fosu-Mensah rupture a cruciate ligament in his right knee and he will require surgery to correct the setback.
It’s sad that Fosu-Mensah was only after opening a fresh chapter in his career and now faces a battle to play again in 2021.
Having suffered serious injuries whilst on loan during his time at United, the Netherlands international never developed into the player many hoped he would.
He’s been highly rated for years and I had my fingers crossed that regular football in Bundesliga would do him good (that backfired).
This also means Fosu-Mensah misses out on the European Championship this summer.
Fosu-Mensah shared the below picture on Twitter from hospital:

It’s another huge setback in the young man’s career and a major blow for Bayer Leverkusen.
They got a very talented player in Fosu-Mensah but also a very unlucky one.
