Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has taken to Instagram to update fans on news of his recent surgery.

The club released a statement on Thursday morning (26 August) confirming that the Academy product had undergone an operation to tackle a niggling groin injury.
McTominay has featured in both of the Reds' Premier League games so far in 2021/22, but was only able to take part in the latter stages of last weekend's 1-1 draw with Southampton.

Following that game, a decision was made that surgery was the best course of action, but McTominay has moved to reassure supporters that he will not be out of action for too long. 
The 24-year-old wrote on Instagram:

“Just to let you all know I’ve had minor surgery on an issue which has needed managing for the last couple of months, I hate missing games so to be missing Wolves on the weekend & the international break is so disappointing but that’s part & parcel of the game. 
“Wishing all the boys the best of luck & I will be back sooner than you think.”
Our no.39 has been one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's most valuable players since the Norwegian took over in December 2018, making 104 appearances.

Last season was the Lancaster-born star's most impressive campaign yet, too. He delivered his best goalscoring season in Red, with seven strikes, and played in 49 games – more than in any of his other four full seasons to date.
