Former Manchester United captain and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has explained why he highly rates Manchester United’s academy product and young lad Scott McTominay.
The 22 year old broke into the first team under Jose Mourinho. He has made an impact despite not exactly being a modern day midfielder. He lives by the classic trait of keeping the game simple and sweeping up everything in front of his defence.
And now Gary Neville has raved about the performance of the youngster versus Chelsea when United won 4-0.
“He’s an impressive young man,” Neville told Sky Sports. “There are probably more skilful players, players with better reputations than McTominay, but if you’re talking about character and resilience, that lad’s gone through it all to get to where he wants to be.”
“That’s through sheer hard work, dedication and training and doing extra.
“It’s no coincidence Jose Mourinho picked him in the biggest games against Chelsea and PSG, and Ole’s doing the same now.
“There’s nothing better than a level-headed young lad absolutely working his socks off. The fundamental basis of any successful person is hard work, and Scott McTominay is doing that in abundance.”
