Scott McTominay hopes to repay Jose Mourinho for the manager’s instrumental role in his elevation to the Manchester United first team.

The midfielder made his Premier League debut last season and has clocked up 17 appearances this term, including a start away to Sevilla in the Champions League’s round of 16. 

Mourinho has not always been known for promoting young talent during his time in charge of Porto, Chelsea, Inter and Real Madrid.

But McTominay knows he owes his rise to prominence to the Portuguese boss. 

“Obviously, there are numerous different factors that have contributed in terms of my development but the main one is Jose Mourinho,” the 21-year-old told United’s club magazine. 

“He’s had the faith to put me in for important matches and trusted me in really big games, so all credit goes to him. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have had chances to play and show people I’m hopefully capable of being a Manchester United player in the future.

“There’s nothing better for me than being selected in the big games. The Champions League game at Sevilla, the Champions League game before that, Liverpool, Chelsea and even the other cup games as well. 

“It’s really good for me to be trusted by the manager. I hope to repay him as he’s done really well to push me forward.”
