Fans reactions as Scott McTominay set to change role at Man United
Scott McTominay could be in line for a position change at Man United
New report indicates that Manchester United coaches view him as the side’s future sole holding midfielder.
Currently, the Scottish international tends to play alongside Fred or Nemanja Matic as part of a two – or a ‘double-pivot’.
However, according to The Athletic, coaches Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna are working with McTominay
However, via discipline and passing required to operate as a sole anchorman.
It has long been speculated that United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would eventually attempt something like this
One of the biggest problems with the current 4-2-3-1 system is that it doesn’t really allow Paul Pogba to flourish
With the Frenchman often playing as one of the two holders, or on the left.
Moving McTominay back to become a sole sitter, the same vein as Rodri at Manchester City or Fabhino at Liverpool
Would allow Pogba to play centrally in his preferred advanced position.
However, despite the move appearing to make a great deal of sense long-term
Some United fans took to social media to voice their concerns and reservations over the player’s protracted positional tweak.
Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna are working with Scott McTominay on the discipline and passing required to operate as a sole sitter.
Below are the reactions
-UtdDistrict – Or how about we just play Donny that can already do that
- Adam Beebz – Great. Still working with McTominay for the past 3 years? What a joke!!
Charles – Others, meanwhile, were more sympathetic towards the idea
Pointing to players he could possibly emulate with the right coaching.
