Player News: Manchester United star Scott McTominay suffering from a groin issue
According to the club’s official site, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Manchester United star Scott McTominay is currently dealing with a groin issue.
The Scottish international has played in both of United’s games so far this season. He put in a spectacle against Leeds on opening night but could only come off the bench against Southampton.
McTominay has now been left out of the Scotland squad ahead of next month’s international fixtures. Solskjaer revealed that the midfielder has been dealing with a groin issue and is working on his recovery.
He went on to add that McTominay has in fact had to undergo surgery for his injury. Having had to play through pain, the Scottish ace will now make use of his time to get himself back into shape.
“Scott has undergone surgery for an ongoing groin injury that was causing significant pain when playing.”
The issue appears to have been around for some time. McTominay appeared to have exhausted all other options and underwent surgery as a last resort. Now that it has been done with, it will hopefully prevent any further escalations.
“Having tried all other treatment options in pre-season, surgery was deemed necessary to resolve the issue.”
Solskjaer admits he is hopeful that McTominay will return to action soon. The Norwegian however refused to put a date on the time frame of his return.
McTominay is now set to miss out on the game at the weekend against Wolverhampton Wanderers. It is our last game before the international break.
