David Moyes praises Scott McTominay as one of top players to watch at Euro

Very rarely would we care about the opinions of one of Manchester United’s worst managers in living memory. But David Moyes has made some interesting comments about Scott McTominay.

In a newspaper column for The Times, Moyes picked out McTominay as one of his seven top stars to watch at Euro 2020, alongside the uninspired selections of Ruben Dias and Kevin de Bruyne.

Moyes says he has been struck by McTominay’s development and says the midfielder has caused his West Ham side problems.

Indeed he did, McTominay scored the extra-time winner to knock the Hammers out of the FA Cup earlier this year.

Moyes said: “McTominay’s development this season was very impressive. He jumped up a level to become one of Manchester United’s most important players.

“I’ve been struck by his drive and his determination when we’ve come up against him with West Ham.

“He looks like he has picked up the leadership and winning qualities of the big players he has been surrounded.

by at United and which United try to develop in their young players. In the Europa League final, he was probably their best performer.”

There was also praise for McTominay from the unlikely source of Graeme Souness
