Manchester United have had one of the worst seasons in the recent memory but if there has been one bright spot in all this mess, it’s been Scott McTominay.
Manchester United started the season badly under Jose Mourinho, the Portuguese had issues with Pogba, Martial and a few other players before he was sacked.
Then came Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who revitalized the squad before the players just stopped playing for him, thanks to the attitude problems amongst others.
However, Scott McTominay has been one of the few players who has had a brilliant campaign. The Scot has been one of the first names on the team-sheet under the Norwegian, but it was actually Jose Mourinho who put his trust in the player when everything was going south for the team.
After Manchester United’s 3-1 loss to West Ham away this season, Mourinho said the following words about McTominay which seems to be coming true now:
“He is a special character.
“He is a special personality and a team in a negative moment needs this kind of mentality that Scott McTominay has.”
The fans are still divided on the fact that whether sacking Jose Mourinho was the right decision or not, however, most of us would agree that the Portuguese was right about Scott McTominay:
Mourinho: “Scott is a kid with a special character, very humble, aggressive, brave, he's a special kid. He's a special character that a team in a negative moment needs. Do my other players have that mentality? Not all of them.“

Love Scott. Man plays like he want's to play for United and his performance this season is giving him the right to play for United.

Scotty always brings tears to my eyes. So proud of that lad. He's proved me wrong this season. More than your talent at United, you need to feel the responsibility and pride for playing for this badge, he gets it. Jose was never my manager but he was right about him. Great lad

My love for Scott will always remain. I think he will be a top top DM.
Jose was right but the way he went about things were wrong.

Scott McTominay is a legend in making. He should be a regular starter for the team.

Respect to mctominay and I whole heartedly apologize for giving him so much stick early on in his career

Highly rate him. If only other players played with the same passion. He’d be in my starting 11 9 times out of 10. And I’d give him player of the year too.

I am glad the fanbase has started to see his ability. The moral of the story, dont judge a youth player too soon. They cant all come in a score on their debut.
The priority is keeping Herrera now. Because he would really help United (and McTominay) next season.

If Pogba isn't captain next year McTominay should be.

Manchester United fans all over the world have been singing the praises of the young midfielder and for good reasons. Hopefully, Scott carries on this form in the next season. We are gonna need it!
