‘We will fix it’: Scott McTominay sends an emotional message to Man United fans

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay believes the team will return to winning ways soon despite a horrific start to the season.

The Red Devils have lost their last two games – both 3-0 at Old Trafford.

The players have demonstrated little fight or desire to win. Erik ten Hag has also made some questionable calls that have piled pressure on him.

McTominay admits that Man United are struggling but is optimistic that his team will turn the tide.

The €25 million-rated midfielder told MUTV: “Everyone knows that we are not in our best period at the minute.

“We have to stick together – that is the most important thing. 

“Obviously, the fans will hear the generic response of ‘we’ve got to stick together’ but it’s true. 

“Everyone wants this football club to succeed and we have to pull together and try to be as good with each other as possible in the dressing room to get those results going our way.

“I feel like we’ve got more than enough talent in the changing room to do that and whenever you look at the boys who are playing, but obviously something isn’t quite clicking. 

“That’s up to the manager and the players to fix that and I’m 100 percent confident that we will.”

Manchester United face a crucial week ahead 

The Red Devils will travel to Craven Cottage to lock horns with Fulham on Saturday.

The Cottagers will be confident of taking at least a point from the clash after earning a hard-fought draw against Brighton & Hove Albion last week.

Marco Silva knows this is the best time to face Man United, who Manchester City and Newcastle United have steamrolled.

The Red Devils will then turn their focus to the Champions League to battle with FC Copenhagen.

After losing two of their three group games, the Premier League giants will be aware that they cannot afford any more slip-ups.

It took them a last-gasp penalty save from Andre Onana to beat Copenhagen at Old Trafford, and they cannot take the opposition lightly.

Disappointing results in these two games will mount further pressure on Ten Hag.

The club might consider sacking the manager, but it won’t help the wider cause.

Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed a brief period of success before things went haywire for them.

Proper restructuring is the need of the hour at the Theatre of Dreams. Without that, any manager will find it hard to succeed.
