Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has heaped the praise on midfielder Scott McTominay following the Scotsman’s epic performance against rivals Leeds United on Sunday.
McTominay, 24, joined United’s youth academy all the way back in 2002 and after successfully climbing his way through the Reds’ ranks has now emerged as an important first-team regular.
Since making his senior first-team debut in May 2017, McTominay has featured in 100 matches in all competitions for the Red Devils.
After being named in his manager’s starting line-up to take-on bitter rivals Leeds United during Sunday afternoon’s mouth-watering Premier League match-up, McTominay put in a simply superb performance.
Two opening goals from the 23-year-old in the first three-minutes of the match ensured the tone was very much set as United went on to thrash Marcelo Bielsa’s men 6-2.
The commanding midfielder was in fine form in more or less every aspect of his game; he was physical, commanding and showcased moments of brilliant attacking ability.
Speaking about his side’s emphatic performance, Solskjaer was quick to praise his 23-year-old midfielder as he labelled McTominay a ‘physical monster’ and drew attention to the Scotsman’s work ethic.
