McTominay reacts to damaging defeat

Scott McTominay says the 6-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur is difficult for him and his team-mates to take.


The Scotland midfielder played 45 minutes as Spurs ran riot at Old Trafford, scoring six times in reply to Bruno Fernandes’s second-minute penalty – four of them arriving after a red card for Anthony Martial.

In an honest interview with MUTV’s Stewart Gardner after the final whistle, Scott said the players will be hurting and must take responsibility going forward. You can read his full thoughts in the Q&A below…

Scott, the fans are hurting after that, how are the players feeling?
“It’s difficult, so difficult to take. The atmosphere in the dressing room… it’s not easy at all. The pressure at this football club to play at the highest level every single week is big so if you want to take that responsibility on you have to take that one and play at the highest level on the pitch every single minute, every single second. You have to train like it’s your last training session and for us the goals we conceded were nowhere near good enough from what I saw. It’s difficult to take.”
