Timothy Fosu-Mensah's season at Bayer Leverkusen is well and truly over after suffering a serious injury over the weekend.

The 23-year-old defender suffered an ACL tear during Sunday's Bundesliga match against Freiburg.

The Ghana-born Dutchman ruptured a cruciate ligament in his right knee and will require surgery to correct the setback.

He now faces a battle to play against in 2021 which has seen his former Man United teammates take to social media to wish him well.

"It's a hard blow for Timothy. We will do everything to support him and to return as soon as possible with his colleagues", said Simon Rolfes, the sporting director of Bayer Leverkusen.
