Picture: Manchester United man all-smiles after signing a new long-term contract

Manchester United have struggled on the field over the last couple of games, with Jose Mourinho’s men drawing at home to Stoke before following that up with a draw away at Anfield. Off the field however, there has been a bit of positive news to smile at.

The club have finally tied Timothy Fosu-Mensah down to a new long-term deal, with the Dutchman all-but confirming the news on social media earlier today. What a great bit of business this is, despite the fact that the young man hasn’t been able to showcase his talents on the pitch as of yet.

As last season drew to a close, he really emerged as a contender to be starting in every game, and whenever given the nod he always took his chance and performed to an extremely high standard.

Under Jose Mourinho, he’ll know he’ll have to wait for his chance and be patient, but I’ve no doubts about it that his moments will come – starting at home to Fenerbahce tomorrow evening.
