Scott McTominay has outlined his ambitions for the rest of this season and for 2018/19, while also revealing his personal highlight of the current campaign with Manchester United.
It has been a breakthrough year for McTominay, who made his first-team debut on this day a year ago - in the Reds' 2-0 defeat at Arsenal in the Premier League - and has since played in key fixtures against Liverpool and Chelsea as well as sampling the Champions League and earning his first Scotland cap.
“I'm delighted with how things have played out, but I always want more. There's always room for improvement and that's the main aim for me going into next season. Taking the small details and attempting to improve them.Throughout every season, from Under-16s to Under-18s, Under-23s up to the first team, you always have your goals and ambitions and sometimes, some years, you exceed that and some years you don't.
“For me, it's all about keeping a level head and always doing things the best way that I possibly can. So, obviously, it's been an amazing year for me, I know that, but I've played 20 games or something like that and obviously next season you want 25 or 30 or 35 games and it's important to keep pushing forward and that's what every young player should be aspiring to do. Keep working hard and to do the best you can.”
“The Liverpool game,”he replied.
“I felt that was one of the best feelings I've ever had. I'm a United fan myself and it doesn't get much better than beating Liverpool. With Marcus Rashford scoring as well, it was an unbelievable day for the Academy.”
“It is a tremendous honour and I am so, so grateful to the manager for picking me,”said McTominay.
“He's shown a hell of a lot of trust in me this year and it's just been really, really great to repay him the best I can on and off the pitch.I'm really looking to kicking on now, and in the last few games of the Premier League, and look forward to next season and a massive cup final.
