Ghanaian youngster Timothy Fosu-Mensah made his Manchester United debut in the 3-2 win against Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Now the 18-year-old believes he’s shown he can cut it at the top level and prove himself consistently.
“I am very happy,” Fosu-Mensah told the Man Utd official website.
“I just feel overwhelmed at the moment. It was a big day for me but I have to keep working hard.
“It was really surreal. The players around me really helped, but the most important thing is that the team played well and we worked hard together. Arsenal are a big team so we’re delighted to win. It was a great performance.
“Everyone works really hard at this club. It’s great that young players are getting a chance. Everyone knows the opportunities are there. So we are all working hard to take them.”
Mensah was born in the Netherlands, and has Ghanaian parents. He’s played for Holland at junior levels so far, so he still has a chance of choosing Ghana at senior level.
The former Ajax teenager got his big chance thanks to Marcos Rojo’s injury during the game. United’s now tried out two new youngsters, including Marcus Rashford who made a sensational impact.
“I’m so happy for him [Rashford],” the defender added.
“He’s a very good friend of mine and it makes me happy every time he scores.”
