Bosz relieves international Fosu-Mensah of hopeless role at Old Trafford

Timothy Fosu-Mensah continues his career with Bayer Leverkusen. The 23-year-old defender leaves Manchester United after six years and signs a contract with coach Peter Bosz for 3.5 years.

Bayer Leverkusen reportedly pays around 1.5 million euros for the triple international, which had an expired contract in Manchester.

Fosu-Mensah moved from Ajax to Manchester United as a 16-year-old in 2014. Two years later, he made his first minutes in the main power of the Mancunians. Among other things, he sat on the bench in the Europa League final of his club against Ajax, where Bosz was sitting on the bench at the time.

It didn

t come from a real breakthrough. He got the most playing time during rental periods at Crystal Palace (2017/18) and Fulham (2018/19). Since then, Fosu-Mensah has only joined Manchester United nine times.

Fosu-Mensah played three times for the Dutch team. He made his debut in August 2017 under national coach Dick Advocate in the World Cup qualifying duel with France (4-0).

Ronald Koeman gave the defender his final minutes for Orange, in the 3-0 won practice duel with Portugal in Geneva in March 2018.
