Ole's update on McTominay and Matic
The boss has been discussing Scott McTominay's absence and the latest on Nemanja Matic...
Q: Ole, when you're without Scott and you're without Paul, does that show a real problem area of your team, that midfield, that you just have that lack of numbers, quality and depth? OGS: And we've lost Nemanja for a long period. Of course that's going to take it's toll for any midfield. If you take midfielders out of any top club I think they'll struggle, but Fred has stepped up and we'll just have try to conjur up a way of replacing them. Q: Is that an area you think you'll need so strengthen long term? OGS: Long term we're looking at different positions and midfield, yeah. We have been looking at midfielders. Q: Is there a specific type of midfielder that you need? OGS: Yeah, there's always types of players that we're looking at, but I'm not going to sit here and talk about that now. Q: Is Scott a particular big loss for you Ole? Because he has seemed to blossomed into a bit of a leader for you on the pitch? OGS: Yeah, Scotty has performed really well this season. Finally, we have nailed a position down for him or he has nailed a position down for himself, and he's played regularly. He's been running midfield before, defensive midfield, he's played centre-back, he's played everywhere. He was a striker when was a kid, but now he's learning the game. And of course, his improvement has been great to see, and we're going to miss him. Sheffield United's set plays, balls in the box, of course Scotty is going to be a little bit of a miss. Q: Just on Nemanja, he seemed to get a bit of stick from fans this week for liking a jokey post about possibly reuniting with Jose. I know you said players need to be boring on social media, but do you have a problem with that at all? OGS: No, that's not a part of being boring. When it's like this, you like Jose coming back and it's going to be a spectacle and a circus and Nemanja has got a sense of humour.
