Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has identified his unsung hero at the club following the conclusion of the season.
It was a campaign of significant progression for United, who excelled in the second half of the campaign to finish second in the Premier League — although the season ultimately ended in disappointment with defeat in the Europa League final.
A solid platform has been built ahead of next season, where United will look to compete for the league title and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be on the hunt for his first trophy as the club’s manager.
In order to do that, a strong unity within the squad is required that goes far deeper beyond the players who just take to the field.
Who is your unsung hero for Manchester United? Let us know in the comments below.
Any side is full of individuals who work hard behind the scenes in a number of different roles and McTominay has highlighted one in particular to single out for praise.
“I sing a lot about Mum and Dad, I praise them all the time so I won’t say them. Unsung? I’d probably say Sam Davies [club sport scientist], the lad who does the drinks,” he told the club’s official website.
He’s there every morning, takes the temperature, asks us how did you sleep, how do you feel, every day, no moaning, brings you your drinks and your shakes after training, so he’s an unsung hero.”
