Scott McTominay has provided a positive update regarding his injury. While talking to Sky Sports, Manchester United midfielder said that he was “feeling good” now, but at the same time, pointed out that he was in no mood to hurry and would follow all the due procedures before making a comeback.
The young central midfielder has been out of the Manchester United squad since Boxing Day match against Newcastle United when he looked to hurt his knee in the early stages of the game before being withdrawn at half-time.
Manchester United’s midfield problems have deepened even further by the fact that Paul Pogba is still on the treatment table, but McTominay is working as hard as he can to get back out on the pitch.
The 23-year-old had been a key figure for United before picking up his injury, which has now sidelined him for 11 games. He’s not expected to travel with the first-team squad for a warm-weather training camp in Marbella next week and will instead continue his rehab work, which he admits has been tough going.
I am feeling good, hopefully, do my best to be back on the pitch as soon as I possibly can,” McTominay told Sky Sports.
“Obviously the gym work is tough, the running outside is tough. You just have to do your best and obviously make sure your injury is right. Hopefully, I will be back as soon as possibly can.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said last month that he hoped to have McTominay available for selection again in February.
