What next for Scott McTominay after Man Utd heroics?
What an impact we saw from Scott McTominay yesterday as he came off the bench to score twice in stoppage time for Manchester United, handing Erik ten Hag’s side an important 2-1 win over Brentford.
It’s not been an entirely easy season for McTominay with so much competition in United’s midfield now, and we know he had chances to leave Old Trafford in the summer. There was interest from West Ham, and also Fulham were pushing in the final days of the summer transfer window, but McTominay only wanted to stay at United.
Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel is also a big admirer of McTominay, as I previously revealed, but there was no concrete approach there, he’s just a player Bayern and Tuchel appreciate. Let’s see what happens with McTominay now, but a performance like this, with two hugely important goals, could be key for his confidence.
