EPL: I don’t understand – Schmeichel questions Ten Hag over Man Utd midfielder

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has insisted he cannot understand why midfielder Scott McTominay has been reduced to a bit-part player at the club by manager Erik ten Hag.

Schmeichel said this following McTominay’s match-winning injury-time brace against Brentford on Saturday.

DAILY POST recalls that the Scotland international appeared destined to leave his boyhood club Man United in the summer amid interest from West Ham United.

Man United, however, failed to receive a suitable bid and retained the 26-year-old’s services.

McTominay has fallen down Ten Hag’s pecking order this season but proved his worth with two injury-time goals that secured an astonishing comeback win and may well have saved his manager’s job.

“He’s got the ability to do that,” Schmeichel told Premier League productions after McTominay’s heroics in the 2-1 win on Saturday.

“I don’t understand what coaches are doing. Scott McTominay was up for sale all summer and I don’t understand that. He’s a fantastic player; you need utility players. You need players that can play different positions, that can come from the bench and change the course of the game and he’s definitely one of them.

“You bring in players and you sit there with big question marks—why is that player there? His feeling for this club is very strong; he plays with all his heart. He will always defend the colours of this club.”
