Scott McTominay loves United. Make no mistake about it.
As the Scottish midfielder continues to improve, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now feels he can trust him in his midfield, which is lacking in quality and depth.
And it hasn’t been a good season for the Reds.
Still, McTominay is getting popular with the fans because he’s one of the players that puts a shift in every week.
Solskjaer this season has picked McTominay over Nemanja Matic. A decision we wholeheartedly agree with, but surely partnering any player in midfield with Fred and Andreas Pereira is an act of cruelty.
McTominay is now receiving praise from ex-Premier League players.
Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara was speaking on talkSPORT, as quoted by Balls, claiming that McTominay is a future Man Utd captain, and that he’d have no problem getting into the current Liverpool team.
“For 22-years of age for me he is a future Manchester United captain, I really think he’s that good,” O’Hara said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“I think he gets in Liverpool’s team. Look, he might not play every game but I think he gets in Liverpool’s side in terms of the midfield that they’ve got and where he would fit in.
“I think he’s as good as Henderson and I think he’s going to be better than Henderson.
“I think if Liverpool had McTominay he would be playing, maybe not week-in week-out, but he’d definitely be a big part of their side.
“Let’s not get away from the fact he’s 22 years of age and he’s playing for Man United in the centre of the park, and I think he’s handled himself great. He’s scoring and you can see he wants to play.
“He celebrates when he’s not even playing, you see him running down the side with his bib on to celebrate with the team.”
One thing that helps McTominay is his dedication for the game and sheer professionalism, in the same way it helped Darren Fletcher.
If McTominay can go to have as good a career as the fellow Scotsman we will all be very happy indeed!
