Man United youngster: I want to reach the top as quickly as possible

Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah has admitted he is fed up with hearing that he needs to bide his time to become a first team regular for the Red Devils and with the Dutch national team.

Fosu-Mensah moved to United from Ajax as a 16-year-old and the versatile youngster is highly rated at Old Trafford. He had already made 16 first-team appearances under Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho before being loaned out to Crystal Palace last season.

After a shaky start in South London, Fosu-Mensah began to impress under Roy Hodgson and will return to his parent club a far more experienced player this summer.

However, despite his tender age and the fact he is at a massive club like United, the talented 20-year-old has admitted that he’s sick of being told to be patient and wants to reach the top as soon as possible!

“I do not want to hear that I am young and that my time is still coming,” he told FunX.

“I want to reach the top as quickly as possible, that’s me. The top is World Cup, European Championship, Champions League final, which is the top for me, winning prizes.

“I was close to the Dutch national team when I was at United, but I did not play anymore. From August 2017 to May 2018 I was loaned to Crystal Palace, I think that was a good choice. I can also play for Oranje.”
