Jose Mourinho has continued to pile the praise on Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay after his second full season at Old Trafford.
The former United manager handed McTominay his debut in the first-team two years ago and played a huge role in the player’s transformation into a valued squad member.
“I think he’s more than ready,” Mourinho told Sky Sports News.
“First of all, he feels his country deeply, I know that.
“And second you have an accumulation of experience during all these years.
“Assistant manager in top clubs, first-team manager in many others.
“Now the last couple of years in Scotland, I think this challenge comes in the right moment for him.
“And I just hope that my boy can help him because Scott McTominay will always be my boy.”
