Man Utd hero Dimitar Berbatov fires warning to Scott McTominay about his new contract

“He’s still young and in his early 20s, so for him to see that the club are trusting him and rewarding him with a contract extension is a great day for him to celebrate.

“He now needs to put those celebrations aside and prove why the club have given him a contract extension, he needs to be even better than before, and he needs to put even more effort into his game so that he can show that he can be a regular starter.”

McTominay cut an increasingly impressive figure in United’s midfield before suffering a knee injury after Christmas that ruled him out for a couple of months.

And Berbatov, who won two Premier League titles at Old Trafford, believes his game has come on leaps in bounds this term.
