Cascarino: Man Utd pair Fred, McTominay not good enough

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino says Manchester United midfield pair Fred and Scott McTominay are just not good enough.

Cascarino reckons McTominay has shown all the attributes to play in a deeper role.

“The two midfielders, McTominay, I think McTominay's okay," Cascarino said on talkSPORT.

“Fred and McTominay are not a partnership, they are not a partnership to lead Manchester United in midfield.

“I think [McTominay's] not bad but you're talking about Manchester United being not bad in midfield.

“I don't see Fred at all, I think he's far better than Fred.

“I actually see McTominay as a centre-half. I look at him every time and come away thinking 'you'd be far better off being a centre-half' because he does a lot of things that centre-halves do well."
