Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he is concerned that midfielder Scott McTominay may have sustained an injury that could keep him out for a number of weeks.
The 22-year-old was stretchered off in the 3-1 win over Brighton yesterday after taking a knock to his ankle near the end of the game, and when asked about the player’s fitness, Solskjaer replied:
“He went over on his ankle. It’s a painful one. I’ve had one and I was out for eight weeks. But then again sometimes you’re back in two weeks, so I don’t know. He’s in for a scan tomorrow… but it looked painful and he’s not one for rolling around.”
McTominay was reportedly seen walking out of Old Trafford after the match, but there was a noticeable limp, with his scan today likely to determine the length of his absence from the team.
Whatever the results, though, it’s likely that the midfielder won’t take any part in Scotland’s Euro 2020 qualifiers this week. Steve Clarke’s side face Cyprus on Saturday and Kazakhstan on Tuesday week.
United will be hoping McTominay will be ready to return to action when the Red Devils play Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in their next game after the international break.
