Man United legend had huge impact on Scott McTominay’s Scotland decision

Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson urged Scott McTominay to choose Scotland over England, the Manchester Evening News report, per The Mirror.

Apparently, Jose Mourinho also told the 21-year-old midfielder to play his international football North of the border, after making his first-team breakthrough at Old Trafford over the last few months.

As an England fan, I wanted McTominay to choose the Three Lions, but I don’t begrudge his decision to choose Scotland. His father is Scottish, and if he feels more alliance for that country, then that’s a decision that only he can make and I understand it.

Also, when you’ve got Ferguson in your ear, a man who knows absolutely everything about football, that’s going to be a huge factor in your decision-making process.

I guess the best thing for McTominay is that he has much more of a chance to play regularly for Scotland rather than England, but the biggest downside is that the chances of them making a major tournament decreases significantly.

From a United point of view, that’s only a good thing as it means he’ll get more summers off to rest and recuperate rather than playing more football.
