Scott McTominay explains when he’ll reach his peak for Manchester United

McTominay progressed through the club&aposs academy and made his debut in 2017, but he made his fewest starts in a Premier League campaign in four years last term and he&aposs set for a reduced squad role again this time around.

The academy product made just 10 league starts last season and his sale was considered by Erik ten Hag in the summer.

McTominay hasn&apost been a regular starter with Ten Hag in charge, although his performances for Scotland have caught attention as he&aposs currently the joint top goalscorer in Euro 2024 qualifying with an impressive six-goal haul.

Scotland play McTominay in a more advanced midfield position and his displays have inspired improvement for Steve Clarke&aposs side.

On an individual basis, McTominay thinks he&aposll continue to improve and he recently told club media he&aposs not reached his peak yet.

“My dad was brilliant because he would always say, &aposJust take your time, son&apos,” McTominay said. “&aposYou&aposre going to grow and you&aposre going to get bigger&apos, because he knows, doesnt he? As a kid, you don&apost know that.

“And you always think: I&aposm always the latest one. But then, when I did grow, when I was 17 or 18, I was sat next to him and I was above him. I was like: &aposWhats going on here? Four years ago, you were saying to me not to worry, and now look&apos.

“Id be thinking to myself: I&aposm bigger than my dad and he&aposs 6ft 2in. So it&aposs crazy in that respect. The way I see it now is that I grew maybe four years after everyone else, so my peak years are going to be four years later, too.
