McTominay’s total transformation

Lukaku, Hojlund, Cristiano, Kane… This is the ranking of the players who have scored the most goals They are in this qualifying phase for the Euro Cup. All the famous forwards around the world, recognized for their ability to score goals and their importance to their respective teams. But, among all of them An ‘intruder’ came in that no one expected: Scott McTominay.

The player of Manchester United put their team behind it and he was chiefly responsible for the great part played by Scotland in this last round. Six goals and one assist in five games. Numbers that a player like him is not well known for used to several positions in the back of the field and has a more secondary role in his club.

I am sure that once he gets his chance he will show everyone that he is also a good player for his club.

This is really the most surprising. At the beginning of the season he played just seven minutes in four games: two against Wolverhampton on the first day and five against Nottingham Forest. A bad dynamic added at the end of the season where after coming back from an injury, he almost had continuity. In total, 38 minutes in the last seven meetings of his team.

In the entire transfer market, His name has been linked with clubs such as Newcastle and West Ham, although in the end his departure was not final. His coach has already shown that he does not trust him, although the performances of the midfielder with his national team may open a small window for more minutes. That’s what his coach, Clarke, thinks.” Sometimes you have to wait for the right moment to have a chance with the team. “I am sure that once he has the opportunity he will show everyone that he is also a good player for his club.”

Leader of a surprising Scotland

The main change that McTominay has experienced in the game is his position on the field. With the ‘red devils’ he usually starts from the defensive midfielder that a player is more of a destroyer than a creator. However, the system used by Steve Clarke allows him to have more access to the opposing area. He is one of two attacking midfielders alongside McGinn and that means it will be a ‘box in a box’.

With Scotty, we’re trying to find a way to play that gives him and John McGinn free rein going forward. It is good to have two players behind them to control the game

The Scottish coach found the ideal system to combine all the players and make Scotland one of the pleasant surprises. He almost made it to the next Euro Cup, even ahead of Spain which they won at Hampden Park 2-0.

“If Scotty, We’re trying to find a way to play that gives him and John McGinn the freedom to move forward.. It’s good to have two players behind them, Billy Gilmour and Callum McGregor, to control the game.” These are the words of Clarke whose confidence in the Manchester player has been rewarded. Now, the ball is in Ten Hag’s court.
