Cape Town - Timothy Fosu-Mensah is hoping to prove his worth at Manchester United after returning from a loan spell at Crystal Palace.

The 20-year-old defender was deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford at the start of the 2017/18 season and was sent out on loan to the Eagles where he played 21 Premier League games.

Now the defender is on a pre-season tour with the Red Devils and working hard to establish himself as a valuable member of manager Jose Mourinho's squad.

"Last year, I was at Crystal Palace, I think I improved there and I've come back a better player," Fosu-Mensah told the press.

"I came back to show that I've improved and to show that I'm a better player now. I'll keep working hard and see what happens.

"I can play right-back, right wing-back, centre-back, in midfield. For me, it's possible. I've played centre-back and right wing-back [on the tour] so for me it's not a problem. I wouldn't say in goal - in goal I would be very bad."

He continued: "I have to take it day to day. I'll keep working hard and if the manager needs me I'll be ready.

"The tour has been good. We've played against quality opponents. We tried to train how we want to play so I think it has been really good for us.

"I'm focused on my training sessions and on the games. The next game is Real Madrid and we have to focus on that now.

"It's very nice to play against a good club, against good players. Some of the best in the world. It's good to have that test and we're focused on that."
