The Manchester United academy is famed for bringing through top talents, and Scott McTominay believes three new graduates could follow his footsteps to stardom.
McTominay joined the club’s youth system at the age of five, coming up through the ranks until he made his first-team debut under Jose Mourinho at the end of the 2016-17 season.
He has since gone on to become a fixture in the United starting line-up, making 27 appearances in all competitions prior to the suspension of activities due to Covid-19, and when asked who was likely to follow in his footsteps, he named a recent Reds revelation and two further hopefuls.
“There’s a lot. You see Di’Shon [Bernard], Largie [Ramazani], Jimmy [Garner], you see Mason [Greenwood], obviously, coming in and Mason’s on his way to being established,” he told the club’s official website.
“He’s not quite at that level of being a regular first-teamer, and that’s what Mason has to strive to become. He’s one of the most talented players that I’ve seen for a long time – his left-foot, right-foot shooting is ridiculous.
“For me, it’s my responsibility – we’ve got to take a responsibility now to push these younger boys and get them up to a level where it’s justifiable that they’ve reached their potential. For everyone at the football club, that’s the primary goal as well. It’s the same for myself: I’m getting pushed by the coaching staff every single day.”
