Jose Mourinho sends message to Man United starlet Scott McTominay

  • Scott McTominay the young Manchester United player breaks free from Andreas Samaris of Benfica in October 2017

The Manchester United midfielder was born in Lancaster but is eligible to represent Scotland as his father hails from Glasgow.

Joey Barton has joked that Scott McTominay chose to represent Scotland over England because he "clearly wants summers off".

"He has now played already, I don't know, seven or eight 90 minutes - he's not played five or ten minutes - in every competition".

You can always rely on Barton for a controversial reaction to a football story; however, there might be England fans out there nodding along with the former Manchester City and Newcastle United star.

And, according to The Times, the Man United youngster has come to a decision.

There are many ways to describe what González exhibited in that glorious moment, as in so many others since the shooting. Rick Scott said he hopes a gun and school-safety bill is passed before the annual legislative session ends March 9.

McTominay may have been included in Southgate's squad for this summer's World Cup finals in Russian Federation had he chosen to represent England.

But if McTominay genuinely feels more Scottish than English then he has made the right decision, even if that means he'll never play in a World Cup finals. "If he's got that, it'd be very hard for him to play for England".

McLeish will name his first team since being appointed last month, for friendlies against Costa Rica and Hungary. "I can't confirm because I have no information about that and my advice to him is not about national teams, is not about that. It's a bit of both - I want them both to do well".

"I've spoken to (United's Under-23s coach) Ricky Sbragia and Nicky Butt (now head of United's youth academy) and the biggest thing is his work-rate and how much the manager thinks he can trust him".

"Scotland have improved to be fair but, look, if he feels more Scottish to England, then fair play to the kid".
