Scotland’s Central midfielder Scott McTominay will be out for some significant period as he has undergone minor surgery for an ongoing groin injury. He posted a photo of him giving this information in the caption. Manchester United academy player, Scott plays at the central midfield position for the club and the Scotland National football team.
Manchester United confirmed this by posting this on their official website and Social media accounts. Scott is Manchester United’s academy player. He made his senior debut for the club in 2017 under Jose Mourinho (manager of Man United then). When the Scotland National team was announced on Wednesday, Scott’s name was not mentioned in it because of the same reason. He is going to miss some International matches coming in September.

Scott McTominay was also not named in the starting 11 in Manchester United’s last premier game against Southampton. When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (manager of Manchester United) was asked about him in a pre-match interview he said that he will not be able to play the whole match because of his groin injury. However, the Scottish midfielder came on from the bench in the 76th minute but didn’t able to create an impact as the game ended 1-1.
“Scott has undergone surgery for an ongoing groin injury that was causing significant pain when playing,” said Manchester United in an official statement.
“Having tried all other treatment options in pre-season, surgery was deemed necessary to resolve the issue. We hope to have him back soon,” the statement added.
