Crystal Palace explain motive for signing Fosu- Mensah from Manchester United

English Premier League side Crystal Palace have revealed the reason behind their signing of Ghanaian right back Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

Jose Mourinho allowed the promising youngster to go out on loan this season after refusing the same offer last season.
Ofosu Mensah is regarded as one of the players to continue the tradition at United but as part of his development getting game time should be invaluable.
Mensah’s new coach Frank De Boar explains the reason behind move.
“Timothy is a player who has great pace and incredible physical ability,”de Boer told his club’s official website.
“In today’s game, you need players with strength and speed and he is an individual with that, and as well as defence, can also play in midfield.
“From knowing him at Ajax, I can remember he was always playing in the team above for his age due to being physically very strong.
“His quality attracted a number of other clubs and I was very sad and disappointed when we lost him at a young age to go to Manchester United.”
“Under Louis Van Gaal a couple of years ago, he made his debut and I have been keeping a check on his progress and he’s ready to play games in the Premier League and that is why I am pleased to have brought him to Crystal Palace,”de Boer added.
“I am seeing him in our system as a right centre back but he can also play full back in a 4-3-3.
“It is always nice as a manager to have a player who can play in more than one position so that you get the quality across the squad.”
