Man Utd legend ‘doesn’t understand’ Erik ten Hag’s treatment of one player



| Last Updated:


Peter Schmeichel has questioned Erik ten Hag’s treatment of Scott McTominay after his two late Premier League goals against Brentford.

Erik ten Hag was saved from further embarrassment after Scott McTominay rose to score two injury-time goals to secure a dramatic victory against Brentford at Old Trafford.

The result certainly saved Ten Hag from facing some tough questions in relation to his Manchester United job, with the manager guiding the club to a poor start in both the Premier League and Champions League.

McTominay has played little part in the season so far, occupying mainly a bench role and starting just two fixtures so far this season, with club legend Peter Schmeichel explaining that he doesn’t understand why the United coaches are not using him more.

“He’s got the ability to do that. I don’t understand what coaches are doing,” he told Premier League Productions. “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?”

With Casemiro being substituted at half-time, this may be the perfect chance for McTominay to establish his name back in the XI alongside Sofyan Amrabat if the Brazilian midfielder is dropped from the starting team.
