Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has spoken out after his side suffered a damaging 4-1 thrashing against rivals Manchester City.
The Red Devils, guided by interim manager Ralf Rangnick, travelled across town to play noisy neighbours and title favourites Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
However, despite their need to win in order to keep their top-four hopes alive, United ended up well beaten after braces from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez ensured all three points will be going back to the blue half of Manchester.
Speaking to Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreves after the game, midfielder McTominay was asked whether or not there are problems behind-the-scenes that are impacting the side’s on-field performances.
Although refusing to give a straight answer, the Scotland international didn’t deny the suggestions that all was not well behind-the-scenes at Old Trafford.
“I have got nothing to say about problems,” McTominay said. “It’s not my place to say anything.
“I’m just here to keep everyone together and we’ve got a big end to the season coming up.
“We need to win in the Champions League and we need to get in the top four. That is all I am thinking about at the minute.
“Whatever goes on behind-the-scenes is completely irrelevant to me – obviously, I am part of it, but you have just got to concentrate on your own game and not get too distracted by other things that are going on at the football club.”
🗣 “This one hurts today.”
