Bruno Fernandes reveals new Hollywood-inspired nickname for Man Utd teammate Scott McTominay

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has revealed another new nickname for his teammate Scott McTominay.

The Scotsman has been out injured and returned to action against Leicester City on Sunday coming on for Fred after an hour of play.

It was his first game for United since January when he started in the Red Devils' 3-2 defeat to league leaders Arsenal at the Emirates.

He's missed six games and given how big United's schedule is, coupled with the injury to Christian Eriksen, Erik ten Hag will be delighted to have him back.


He's not the only one who is happy to see him playing with pal Fernandes making sure to congratulate McTominay on his return.

What did he say?

The 26-year-old posted a picture of him on Instagram with the caption "happy to be back", as reported by the Sun.

Fernandes was quick to reply, saying: "Welcome back macterminetor", a nickname inspired by the Hollywood movie The Terminator.


It's not the first nickname the Portuguese international has given a to his fellow midfielder, after he referred to him as 'Scottynaldinho' back in 2020 following a 6-2 win over rivals Leeds United.


Clearly the two players get on well and it's yet another sign of the positive atmosphere that Ten Hag has created in the dressing room since he joined in the summer.

Over the past few years United haven't looked very much like a team with players often leaving under a cloud of controversy.


The Dutchman has done very well to turn that around and it finally looks like they have a team spirit reminiscent of what was seen under Sir Alex Ferguson.

The pair were recently spotted having dinner at a restaurant in Cheshire so he could be taking inspiration from the United legend.

Ultimately, Ten Hag is getting the best out of players other manager were unable to, and if the club continue in the right direction it won't be long before they are competing on all fronts again.
