I’m still learning – Fosu-Mensah

Manchester United youngster Timothy Fosu-Mensah is looking to build upon his impressive showing for the Red Devils.

The 18-year-old has put up a string of fine performances in his first season of first team football, culminating in seven league appearances for Louis van Gaal’s side.

“It’s been an exciting few weeks but I still have to learn a lot of things and that’s what I’m trying to do – keep learning, keep improving and try to develop as a player and train hard every day,” Fosu-Mensah told the club’s official website.

“It’s about confidence but I think we all try to do what we always do and just play our football. We work hard, I work hard and I want to learn a lot. I’m open to learning a lot.

“I do my best and listen to the coaches and the senior players like Wayne [Rooney], Carras [Michael Carrick], Chris [Smalling] and Daley [Blind]. I listen to them all and try to do something with it.

“The senior players just help me with what I have to do on the pitch, where I have to stand sometimes and other things. It helps me a lot.

“I’m very delighted [to see the fans’ reaction] but, as I said, I have to keep working hard. I just try to keep my head cool and try to do what I always do when I play and focus on playing my game.”

The starlet, who started in United’s 2-1 win over Everton in the FA Cup on Saturday, was born to Ghanaian parents in the Netherlands, and is, thus, eligible to play for the Black Stars
