Scott McTominay puts an end to the talk about locker room strife between Erik Ten Hag and the Manchester United players.
As reported by The Mirror, Erik ten Hag had lost control of the locker room after Manchester United’s 1-0 loss against Newcastle. Players were reportedly unhappy with the direction that the team was heading in which led to a lot of internal strife.
Scott McTominay, whom Ten Hag holds in high regard defended the Dutchman and quelled all the talk suggesting that tempers are running high within the Red Devils’ locker room.
McTominay has played under managers like Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Now, as someone who is well-versed in the club’s recent troubles, the Scottish national reassuringly told everyone that the team is firmly behind the manager.
McTominay also shed some light on how the players approach the issue of managers being sacked. Here’s what the defensive midfielder had to say (h/t Sky Sports).
“It is the players’ responsibility. We know that as well.”
This refreshing news comes at a crucial time. Erik Ten Hag and his Manchester United side are all set to take on Bayern Munich in a must-win game on Tuesday. Moreover, fans will be hoping that Galatasaray ends up tying against Copenhagen.
If the stars align, then we are in for a surprise. This upcoming week will make or break the Red Devils’ season. However, if the results are underwhelming it’ll spell the end of their Champions League aspirations.
