During the press conference before the match with Bayern Munich, Scott McTominay commented on the rumors that the players are dissatisfied with Erik ten Hag and his methods. The Scot stressed that the players should shoulder the blame for poor results.

He also highlighted the presence of numerous strong characters within the team who serve as genuine leaders. What's intriguing is the Scot's confirmation that the locker room used to be toxic under the previous managers' leadership.

‘It’s the players responsiblity first and foremost players know that as well. We’ve had many amazing players over the time and I feel we’re at a stage now where we’ve got big characters in the dressing room where it’s not just a case of like under some of the other managers where it’s been a little bit toxic at times.'

- he said, as quoted by METRO!

Football players are on Erik ten Hag's side. The Dutch expert has been increasingly criticized lately. It is clear that Manchester United is not constant as a team. That worries fans. At some moments it looks like they can fight for high goals, while at other moments the same team looks unrecognizable.

‘The boys are firmly behind the manager and that’s the be all and end all. I’ve said that in many other interviews and that’s the way it will remain.'

Scott McTominay: We just want to do well for the football club

The Scot believes that all players have the same goal: To help their team.

They will have a chance to show in today's match against Bayern Munich whether they are ready for big things. Manchester United will have a difficult mission, but not an impossible one. If they win, and Copenhagen and Galatasaray draw, United will secure the next round of the competition.

However, how realistic it is to happen remains to be seen.

‘We’ve got an amazing coaching staff as well. It can get lost in translation and get carried away with what players think and say behind closed doors. We just want to do well for the football club and it’s as simple as that.’
