Scott McTominay Hailed As A Future Manchester United Captain After Mature Post-Match Interview

Manchester United fans loved Scott McTominay's post-match interview after he captained his side to victory on Saturday.

McTominay scored the only goal of the game as United beat Watford 1-0 to secure passage to the next round of the FA Cup.

It was a special night for the Scotland international who skippered his boyhood club for the first time as he revealed the moment Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told him he was going to be captain.

On his goal, he told Des Kelly: "I have to score more headers. I'm six foot three!"

He continued: "For me when the manager told me [he was going to be captain], it was a surreal moment.

"I've been here since I was five years old, it's been my whole life and it was a real honour for me."

Solskjaer added: "Scott [McTominay] has had a very good season. He's being more and more dangerous, we know he can be a box-to-box midfielder.

"He should have scored a few more on set-plays before now because he is a monster of a human being. I am very happy he got the goal."

The 24-year-old's mature words went down nicely with United fans on social media.

A second tweeted: "Fast tracked into the leadership conversation."

A third added: "Plays for the shirt week in week out."
