Jose Mourinho tells Man United fans this player is impressing in training

Jose Mourinho says he is expecting big things from Timothy Fosu-Mensah in the coming years for Manchester United

Jose Mourinho says he is expecting big things from Timothy Fosu-Mensah at Manchester United in the seasons to come.

The young defender signed a new contract with the Red Devils on Wednesday to keep him at the club until the summer of 2020, with an option to extend his new deal for a further year.

The 18-year-old broke into the Manchester United first team last season under Louis van Gaal after joining the club back in 2014 and has made 12 first-team appearances for the Red Devils.

Mourinho has been delighted by the attitude shown by Fosu-Mensah since the Portuguese coach’s arrival at Old Trafford back in May.

And the United boss has been thrilled by the promise shown by the teenager in training at Carrington.

Speaking in an interview with Manchester United’s website, Fosu-Mensah said: “Tim is young player with great potential.

“I am pleased that he has signed a new contract and I am delighted at the progress he has made so far. It is clear to see that he is learning every day in training and there will be plenty of opportunities for him as the season continues.”
