Manchester United star told he lacks “crazy appetite” that Scott McTominay offers



| Last Updated:


One Manchester United star has been told he lacks the “crazy appetite” that Scott McTominay is offering right now.

McTominay, 27, scored yet another goal to help United win against Aston Villa last weekend.

It was the Scottish midfielder’s eighth goal of the season, with several of those coming from appearances off the bench.

There were rumours of the midfielder being close to leaving the club in the summer, but he has instead been a key player this term due to the important goals he’s scored.

“I have been impressed with McTominay´s attitude,” said former United defender Paul Parker to bettors. “I still don’t think he is good enough to be a starter for a team that wants to win titles, but he is showing something that not many players show at Man United

“You have to make things happen, which McTominay did very well,” he added, speaking on the winner against Aston Villa. “He shows that he wants to prove a point, which I really love about him.”

“He has a crazy appetite. He forced that situation by his run because he made it happen. Your phone only rings if you make it ring.

“Well done, lad. You´re showing how you should act when fighting for your club as a local boy.”

In comparison, Parker believes that fellow academy graduate Marcus Rashford does not show that “crazy attitude” in those kinds of positions that McTominay is currently thriving in.

“His goal against Aston Villa shows what hard work and willingness to run can do. He only made that goal because he made a run, which Marcus Rashford never does.

“Rashford is always waiting for the pass, but McTominay was running to get the ball even though he had no guarantee to get his head on it. Rashford wants guarantees, and you can never get that in football.”
