Scott McTominay is Manchester United’s best player claims former manager Jose Mourinho. McTominay made his Premier League debut under the Portuguese manager against Arsenal in 2017 and the defender has since been an integral part of the first-team squad.
The Tottenham boss used the Scotland international as an example of how he has handled young players from academies well.
Asked in his pre-match press conference as Spurs prepare to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League the former United manager was asked if he thought the criticism of his handling of young players and academies in the past was fair. He said:
Yes, it’s very important, Scott McTominay is only the best player at Manchester United. Raphael Varane is one of the best players in the world, yes, it’s a fair criticism.
