Scott McTominay has identified areas he can improve upon despite the Scotland and Manchester United midfielder’s best season of his pro career.
The battler has returned from a lengthy knee injury at a great time as Manchester United journey on their impressive form of late. They’ve not lost in 11 games, keeping an impressive clean sheets.
There’s always room to improve though. For McTominay, he wants to keep adding goals to his game as his progression continues.
“It’s always been part of my game, scoring goals from midfield and obviously making the box late and scoring from outside the box as well,” he told United’s website.
“Headers as well, I need to do better with them as well, so obviously there are a lot of things that I need to improve on.
“Obviously goalscoring is something that I take very, very seriously and obviously for myself it’s nice to get a few goals in the last couple of weeks, coming back from injury, but you need to keep scoring as regularly as you can and pushing towards the end of the season for trophies as well.”
McTominay might not score many goals more famous than his effort against Manchester City recently. He struck the ball from all of 40 yards into the net after a misplaced kick by goalkeeper Ederson, sealing a 2-0 win.
His return looked set to be a huge boost for Steve Clarke ahead of the Euro 2020 play-off matches. With football in most places now suspended, the United man probably won’t get to make that pivotal impact he may well have done for Scotland.
But it’s good to see a young player hungry for more, despite having plenty already in his locker.
