Jose Mourinho praises “good learner” Scott McTominay

Jose Mourinho has described Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay as “humble” and a player with a willingness to continue learning more.

“He’s playing well. He is using every minute on the pitch and outside the pitch to learn,” he told reporters at Monday’s press conference.

“He’s humble, he wants to learn. He doesn’t want headlines or flashes. He just wants to work, improve and be useful for his team.

“He was progressively getting chances to play. He got the injuries of Michael Carrick, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Paul] Pogba and [Ander] Herrera – basically all of the midfield players I have. He was getting minutes and getting experience and the best way to improve is to be on the pitch. He is a good learner.”
