Tunnel footage showed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his new Man United leader ahead of Atalanta game – Manchester Evening News

Much has been said of late about Manchester United’s leaders, or lack thereof.

Well, a new one for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was spotted ahead of Tuesday night’s Champions League test at Atalanta.

Minutes before kick-off, United’s players appeared calm and relaxed, with many of them in the tunnel enjoying a conversation with one another as they prepared to enter the field of play.

However, the same could not be said for all of them. Following his outstanding, man-of-the-match display against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, Scott McTominay highlighted just how big a character he is in the United dressing room by taking on the role as motivator ahead of kick-off.

Footage captured from inside the tunnel ahead of kick-off at the Gewiss Stadium has shown that McTominay was standing tall and showing a sense passion, whilst rallying his team-mates.

He was heard shouting “Let’s go! Let’s go!” as almost every other member of the squad prepared to walk out onto the playing surface in complete silence.

Although he has had to face criticism on numerous occasions this season, McTominay has become a mainstay in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans so far this term, proving himself to be one of the first names on the teamsheet.

After Saturday’s win over Spurs, United chief Solskjaer could not refrain from waxing lyrical about the Scotland international.

Solskjaer said: “He was man of the match. By a mile.

“That’s the Scott we’ve seen many times before, you know. He’s had his injuries, he’s had an operation this season but today I thought he was absolutely brilliant.

“He won his tackles, drove forward, kept the ball simple, switched play, headed away a few set-plays, so [he was] absolutely top.”
