Scott McTominay Is On The PES 2020 Front Cover Alongside Lionel Messi

One of the greatest players to ever play the beautiful game is gracing the PES 2020 cover but enough about Scott McTominay, Lionel Messi is also there as well.

Konami have just released the global cover for the upcoming game and have put PES ambassadors McTominay, Serge Gnabry and Miralem Pjanic front and centre as well as five-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi.

Reflecting on being United's go-to player for the new PES deal, McTominay said: "It's a real honour for me, and I'm really excited to get the partnership under way. I've been playing the game a lot and the graphics look absolutely amazing."

This year Bayern, United and Barcelona are all official partners for PES, who have one-upped FIFA by securing Juventus as an exclusive partner.

PES is the only game with the official license to Juventus in the form of the team name, the club crest, official kits and stadium - with EA Sports forced to rename the Bianconeri 'Piemonte Calcio' for FIFA 20 as a result.
