Manchester United star Scott McTominay issues rallying call following Arsenal thrashing
The defeat all but rules out the Red Devils from qualifying for the UEFA Champions League. The performance at the Emirates was better than the one we put upon at Anfield a few days ago, but lacked energy and we were found wanting once again.
While some decisions did go against us, certain players failed to turn up on the night and the difference showed. With five more games to go this season, the Red Devils have little more than pride to play for.
McTominay has promised to give it his all for the club’s cause despite having little to nothing to play for. He has also called upon other players to keep fighting for pride if nothing else.
“It’s important we have pride towards the end of the season. We can’t give up now.”
The Scot went on to add that the dressing room has already spoken about the matter. The players are aware of what they represent while donning the red jersey and cannot afford to let their guard down. Hopefully, all this is not idle talk and the team will turn up in the remaining games.
“But we won’t give up. That’s what we’ve said in the dressing room. We’re playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world and everybody has to have the same mentality to play with a bit of pride and guts about our performances.”
A dressing room divided?
McTominay’s comments are in stark contrast to that of Bruno Fernandes who stated earlier this week that Man United had nothing to play for. While he may not speak for his teammates, the Portuguese ace certainly performed like someone with nothing to fight for at The Emirates.
Club legend Paul Scholes also shed light on the matter claiming that Jesse Lingard has revealed that the Red Devils’ dressing room is a house divided. Clearly, matters do not appear to be rosy behind the scenes.
