‘You’re wasting him in midfield’ – Manchester United legend tells Solskjaer

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has told current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he’s wasting Scott McTominay in midfield.

Solskjaer uses the Scotland International as a defensive midfielder, mostly in a double pivot role beside Fred.

However, the United great believes McTominay can play as a box to box midfielder.

He told the BBC: “The coaches either want an attacking midfielder or a sitting midfielder but I still think there are people out there who can do box to box.

“They’ve just got to work a little bit harder and get their finishing right. I think we have one at this club in Scott McTominay, I don’t think he just has to be a sitting midfield player and just class as a defensive player.

“He’s scored seven goals last year and I think where maybe Scott can improve as a player is trying to get between 10 and 15 goals every season.

“If you’re a midfield player and stay away from injury then you can achieve that. I think Scott’s got that in his locker.”

According to Robson, McTominay can score more goals if used as a box to box midfielder.
