is one of the latest academy players ofManchester United
which found their way through the first team. He got his debut while Jose Mourinho was in charge and quickly became one of his favorite players. Jose loves physical players and Scott Mctominay is excellent in terms of physical attributions.
However, the young Scottish midfielder says that he couldn’t make it anywhere but Manchester United. Discussing his career path with Pro Direct Soccer, McTominay said: “I genuinely don’t think it’s sunk in.
“I think it’s something that I will look back at the end of my career.
“It’ll sink in as a special time in my life and sometimes you need to reset and think about it. My family is very humble, they won’t let you get ahead of yourself. They are always pushing me behind the scenes.
“When I was 16, I was really small. I couldn’t get near the team and I was injured for two years in the youth team.
“When I look back on it, if I knew in my mind how difficult it is to get to here, I would have written myself off.
“If I was at any other football club, I wouldn’t have been a footballer.”
McTominay has taken in 11 outings this season, while helping Scotland to qualify for next summer’s European Championship, but is having to battle with the likes of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Fred, Nemanja Matic, and Juan Mata for recognition.
