But it doesn’t look like much is changing at United, and the club’s next manager Erik ten Hag has a huge job on his hands. McTominay suggested how to inspire change, as he said: “For us, self-belief, lack of confidence, you can see it all in the last two months. The last four games are about pride for us.
“Going out on the pitch and showing a bit of balls in your performances and not shying away from the ball or not doing everything right. It’s a bit of balls in your performances man, that’s what it comes down to. The fundamentals of football.
“It’s difficult for me to speak right now because you’re so high in emotions after a game and the last two months like that.”
It’s been a miserable season for United and they may still end up missing out on European football altogether. Ralf Rangnick was brought in as interim boss to guide United until the end of the season after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked, but no improvement has been made.
