Fosu-Mensah: Manchester United my priority.



Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah is prioritising his club career ahead of playing for Netherlands.

Fosu-Mensah, who made eight Premier League starts for the Red Devils, pulled out of the Netherlands squad back in May due to a groin injury as he needs to recover for United's pre-season in July.

"A groin problem was causing me too much problems," the United academy graduate told Voetbal International.

"I told the national team coach about it and also informed the doctor. I need to rest. If I do too much now, I will be sidelined during pre-season. We also have a trip to China coming up with Manchester United. I have to be fit for that. It's a long journey and we will be training hard.

"I will meet with my physio in two weeks' time and we will do everything to make sure I will be ready for the first training of the new season.

"The national team coach has ensured me that he is keeping a close eye on me. I am still only 18. My time will come. I am focused on United now. I was happy with the call-up for Netherlands and the coach will keep following me."
