BBC pundit Gary Lineker expressed his bewilderment at Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag’s decision not to feature midfielder Scott McTominay more prominently this season.
Jadon Sancho, a Manchester United winger, is reportedly being monitored by Borussia Dortmund following a public dispute with Ten Hag. Sancho was dropped from the matchday squad for the defeat against Arsenal due to his training performance but disputed the claims on social media.
Discussions regarding Sancho’s future at Manchester United are underway, but it remains uncertain whether he can rejuvenate his career at the club.
Additionally, Manchester United attempted to sign Rico Henry from Brentford late in the summer transfer window but couldn’t complete the deal. Instead, they secured the loan signing of Sergio Reguilon from Tottenham Hotspur.
Gary Lineker expressed his surprise that Scott McTominay hasn’t featured more prominently for Manchester United this season. Despite his strong form in Euro 2024 qualifying for Scotland, where he has scored six goals and provided one assist, McTominay has only played seven minutes in the Premier League.
Lineker noted McTominay’s ability to get into goal-scoring positions and highlighted his top-scoring record in the Euro 2024 qualifying matches for Scotland. McTominay’s versatility and finishing abilities make him an intriguing option for Manchester United in the forward areas, where they have occasionally lacked incision.
