Erik ten Hag says that Manchester United were wrong to try and sell Scott McTominay during the summer
Manchester United were trying to offload Scott McTominay during the summer. A decision that Erik ten Hag would have come to regret had he let it happen. The 27-year-old midfielder served as the Red Devils’ skipper when they fought Liverpool to a draw on Sunday.
McTominay called his captaincy nod to be the biggest honour of his life. This is to be expected when you take into account that he has been with the club his entire life.
The Scottish midfielder has been solid for Ten Hag’s injury-ridden squad saving them time and time again. He even saved the game against Brentford by knocking in two goals after coming on as a late sub.
While fans are not impressed with his performance on the pitch his immediate future is secure at United. Even if he is not always featured on the stat sheet, McTominay’s passing and eye for the right pass are both excellent qualities.
Speaking of stats, he has led the Manchester United team in goals scored this season. In 19 appearances the 27-year-old has scored six goals and has even grabbed one assist (Transfermarkt).
As the season progresses it is becoming much more apparent that the Old Trafford squad would have been worse off without McTominay’s production this season.

The only thing lacking from McTominay’s stint with Manchester United is his trophy cabinet. The Scottish midfielder has only won one trophy with the club.
However, fans are hopeful that the situation will change once Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s deal is ratified and he takes control of the club’s operations.
