Man Utd midfielder McTominay: Chong has big future

Scott McTominay has tipped Tahith Chong to become the next 'star' from Manchester United's academy.

Chong, 20, made his first-team debut in 2018 and recently signed a long-term contract extension.

Another player from the academy, Hannibal Mejbri, is being hyped as a potential superstar for the club after arriving for £10m from Monaco last summer.

But McTominay thinks Chong will reach the top before the 17-year-old.

When asked by Sport Bible who the next 'star' would be out of the two players, McTominay replied: "I'll go with Chongy, because I've seen what Chongy's like as a boy, as an athlete, and he's got a big future."
