Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told he is playing midfielder Scott McTominay in the wrong position, by ex-Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino on TalkSport

The United graduate has been a shining light in what has been a disappointing campaign thus far, with the academy graduate starting all 11 Premier League games this season.

Although he does not have the world-class qualities of midfield compatriot Paul Pogba, is energy and tenacity have been a big hit with the Old Trafford faithful.

Solskjaer has started McTominay in every Premier League game this season.

The Scotland international has also chipped in with goals as he showed again away at Norwich, with a shot on the turn last weekend.

However, former Chelsea man Cacarino told TalkSport that he felt Mctominay is not being played in the right position.

Saying: “Fred and McTominay are not a partnership, they are not a partnership to lead Manchester United in midfield.

“I think [McTominay’s] not bad but you’re talking about Manchester United being not bad in midfield.”

Adding: “I actually see McTominay as a centre-half. I look at him every time and come away thinking ‘you’d be far better off being a centre-half’ because he does a lot of things that centre-halves do well.”
