Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay is fully confident that manager Erik ten Hag can lead the club to a change in fortunes.
Despite facing growing pressure due to United’s poor start to the season, McTominay believes that the collective efforts of the players and coaching staff will yield positive results.
The Scotland international told the club’s official website: “There’s more that goes into it when you’re not playing well and you’re not doing so well.
“I know the fans don’t want to hear that, they want to see results and performances and I think they want to see the players smiling and happy.
“It’s not quite happening at the moment, but I’m 100 per cent sure that the manager can put that into practice and it can come off. I’m sure of that.”
Following back-to-back 3-0 defeats at home to Manchester City and Newcastle, Manchester United will be facing Fulham on Saturday and Copenhagen in Denmark next Wednesday as they seek to turn their fortunes around.
“We have to win, that’s always the thought process,” McTominay said. “Obviously my thoughts are with the fans at the minute because we’re not playing well and it’s difficult for them.
“They pay their hard-earned money every week to come and watch us and the least we can do is play well and win football matches.
“It’s not quite happening at the moment, sometimes that’s football, but I feel like for us in that dressing room we have to stay tight and keep a clear head, and we can’t get too emotional with everything that surrounds us. We’ve got to block it all out.”
