Phil Neville has seen Scott McTominay emerge as one key piece in the tactic of Red Devils’ manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Scott McTominay came out of the Manchester United youth system in 2017.

That year he debuted with the Red Devils, where he has been an intermittent figure.

But thanks to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he has emerged as a key piece for United.

He’s an impressive young man,” former English Premier League player Phil Neville said to Metro.

“There are probably more skillful 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.”

Neville explained: “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,” he added.

“The fundamental basis of any successful person is hard work, and Scott McTominay is doing that in abundance.”
