Scott McTominay has become the most trusted midfielder in the team for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norweigan youngster has shown his impact against Leeds United last weekend. McTominay scored a brace within the first 3 minutes of the game and provided an assist to Daniel James. He was the ‘Man of the Match in that game.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has kept his faith in the midfield duo of Scott McTominay and Fred in some important matches. McTominay is one of the fan’s favorites for his dedication towards the club.
McTominay made his debut for Manchester United in 2017 under Jose Mourinho. He is now just 24-years old. He has already played 101 games for the club and scored 10 goals.
Earlier in an interview with The Times Scott McTominay thanked Mourinho to give him the breakthrough. He said, “Jose was amazing for me. You’re liked by what you do on the pitch and how you are off the pitch and I feel Mourinho saw something in me at a time some people did and some people didn’t, and I’m grateful.”
After the match against Leeds last weekend, he said to Skysports, “You just go on the pitch and do your job, you don’t want to get too carried away.”
“Last season we weren’t approaching games in the right frame of mind, but this time we are. We’re getting used to scoring goals at home, it’s so important.”
“The confidence grows and everyone gets that boost of energy. The athleticism we showed today was second to none.”
“We don’t look at the table, there’s no time for looking. We have to take every game one by one.”
As Paul Pogba is uncertain at Manchester United from next season, McTominay can take his place in the squad.
