Scott McTominay has performed admirably for Manchester United this season, and Christian Eriksen feels that the two are growing closer.
Before Thursday’s Europa League loss to Real Sociedad, United’s four straight Premier League victories each featured Scotland international McTominay and summer acquisition Eriksen.
McTominay has received a lot of criticism from fans and commentators in recent years, with former United captain Roy Keane declaring the midfielder is not good enough after a loss earlier in the season.
However, Eriksen expressed his admiration for his new teammate to MUTV, saying that Scott had performed admirably and that everyone could tell from the games.
The first few times, I believe we were a little lost in each other’s company and trying to figure out where we were, but now, thanks in part to the manager’s instructions and the roles he has assigned us, I believe we are beginning to connect well and feel comfortable in our surroundings.
Therefore, we must first concentrate on our collaboration while also concentrating on where the management wants us to be.
I believe it has gone well, but winning games also makes it simpler to reflect on the past, boosts confidence, and helps you forget about your minor slip-ups and focus on the positives.
However, McTominay has continued to play a significant role under new manager Erik ten Hag despite the summer transfer of Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro to Manchester United.
McTominay may still greatly rely upon this season even if he is dropped from the starting lineup, especially with the addition of five substitutes.
In the weeks leading up to the midseason World Cup, United has a busy schedule that includes multiple games in the Premier League, Europa League, and Carabao Cup each week.
The entire team will be crucial, according to Eriksen, who also thinks it’s a smart idea to allow for five substitutions this year. This will relieve some of the pressure on the players and offer the manager more options.
