Scott McTominay has commented on his development at Manchester United after a fantastic week for Scotland.
The midfielder has transitioned well into the 3-5-2 system Steve Clarke is implementing with the national team, playing on the right-side of the back three. It’s a position he is currently flourishing in, shining in three consecutive victories with three clean sheets.
Manchester United may have another option in defence on the basis of his navy blue showings, McTominay now almost a guaranteed starter in Clarke’s defence.
But now it’s back to the domestic scene with the Red Devils, who have come under fire for a poor start to the season on and off the park. Many questions have been asked about manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but McTominay is thankful for the Manchester United leader.
“The whole club is behind him,” the Scottish international said of his boss (TV2). “We believe in every word he says, and it’s not just him. We trust every word from Mike Phelan, Kieran McKenna, Michael Carrick and the entire support staff.
“You see it in the way he has developed me and given me playing time and how I have played. That is a lot to his credit.”
Meanwhile, Scotland partner Declan Gallagher has heaped praise on the midfielder-turned centre-back.
The Motherwell captain says the enforcer has been a vocal voice alongside him and debutant Andy Considine over the last two 1-0 victories over Slovakia and Czech Republic in particular.
“Everybody that’s come in has done brilliantly,” said Gallagher (Sky Sports). “Andy (Considine) has been brilliant, Coops (Liam Cooper) before that was brilliant so I think that everybody who comes into the squad is ready for it.
“Scotty on the right was brilliant, he just never stopped talking. So we’ve made a good partnership and I think that’s why it works so well.”
