‘Good decision’, ‘Great news’ – Man United fans on Twitter very happy about midfield lynchpin

Manchester United fans are in the Transfer Tavern are showing a lot of respect to their 21-year-old midfielder, Scott McTominay, after the midfielder has declared that he’ll play international football for Scotland and not England. The Manchester United academy graduate could even be given his first international caps next month as Scotland face friendlies against Costa Rica and Hungary.

McTominay, rated at £900,000 by Transfermarkt, has forced his way into Jose Mourinho’s midfield despite the quality of his competition for a starting role from Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini. The 21-year-old started the season by captaining United’s Premier League 2 side before making his first senior appearance of the season as a substitute in the club’s 4-1 win over Burton Albion at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup back in September.

Since then the Scottish midfielder has gone from strength to strength, recently being one of the Red Devils stand out performers in a Champions League round-of-16 tie against Sevilla a few weeks ago. If McTominay continues playing in the rich vein of form he’s found since the turn of the year then it’ll be hard to justify Scotland manager, Alex McLeish, leaving the youngster out of the international squad.

In the short term however, McTominay will be focused on ensuring United finish the season strong as they continue to fight in three competitions in the hope of silverware.

Here’s what the United fans have been saying:
