Scott McTominay says he "wouldn’t have made it" at any club except Man Utd

Scott McTominay reckons he wouldn't have it anywhere other than Manchester United.

The Scotland international graduated from United's academy to the first team in the 2016-17 season, with former Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho handing him two Premier League appearances.

McTominay hasn't looked back since making his debut against Arsenal, going on to make a further 82 appearances over the last three seasons.

The Scot has been a regular fixture in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side this season making, 11 appearances so far this campaign.

McTominay, 23, is five appearances shy of 100 outings for Manchester United, a milestone he's amazed to have reached given his struggles with injury as a youngster.

“I genuinely don’t think it’s sunk in," McTominay said in an interview with Pro Direct Soccer.

“I think it’s something that I will look back on at the end of my career.

“It’ll sink in is a special time in my life and sometimes you need to reset and think about it.

"My family are very humble, they won’t let you get ahead of yourself. They are always pushing me behind the scenes.

“When I was 16, I was really small. I couldn’t get near the team and I was injured for two years in the youth team.

“When I look back on it, if I knew in my mind how difficult it is to get to here, I would have written myself off.

“If I was at any other football club, I wouldn’t have been a footballer.”

McTominay and his Manchester United team-mates will be back in action on Wednesday night, welcoming French champions Paris Saint-Germain to Old Trafford for their fifth Champions League Group H match.
