Scott McTominay not short of inspiration at Man Utd

Scott McTominay says he isn't short of inspiration at Manchester United.

The midfielder sees senior United players Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford as role models.

On Lingard, McTominay told manutd.com: "It just shows how far you can actually come. A lot of people may have written Jesse off when he was a lot younger and smaller and thought he might not be capable of playing at the top level but look at him now, he's done it.

"Marcus Rashford is another prime example. Marcus and I were in the Under-16s and we used to do 45 minutes each. We both weren't capable of playing the full game. That was in the no.10 role and we've both moved positions; he's gone up front and I've dropped back into midfield.

"Marcus has what you want to see as a fan: blistering pace. United is by far the best place for producing young players and winning trophies, which is what the club wants to get back to. Everyone wants to keep pushing forward and winning as much as possible."
