Scott McTominay enjoying life under Solskjaer

Scott McTominay says he is enjoying life at Manchester United following the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and he no longer holds concerns over his long-term future at the club.

Scotland international McTominay struggled for regular minutes under Solskjaer’s predecessor Jose Mourinho and when he did get time on the pitch he was often played out of position.

However, since Solskjaer’s arrival in December, the 22-year-old has enjoyed an extended run in his favoured central midfield position, featuring in big matches, including the Champions League triumph over Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month.

McTominay also signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract with the club back in January and he has now revealed that he is much more upbeat about his long-term prospects at Old Trafford.

“There have been times when it’s been so, so tough, you’re playing out of position and you’re not quite sure exactly how you’re perceived and what your role is going forward,” McTominay told Sky Sports.

“But now having played a run of games under Ole it’s been much better. We’ve had some amazing nights and big games as well. I just want to keep learning.”

The midfielder is currently away on international duty with Scotland and he will be looking to add to his five caps for his country when the Tartan Army take on Kazakhstan and San Marino this week.

First up for Scotland is the long-trip to Kazakhstan for their opening Euro 2020 qualifier on Thursday and they are priced at 1.91 to emerge from that match with a victory, while the hosts are available at 4.33 and the draw is on offer at 3.30.
