Scott McTominay seems to be at ease with the new Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick, the midfielder recently shared the closed door experience with the German football manager.
McTominay played the full 90 minutes against Crystal Palace, with Rangnick singling him and fellow holding midfielder Fred out for praise after the match, while also urging them to cut the sloppy square passes from their games.
Speaking ahead of United’s clash against bottom of the table Norwich on Saturday, the Scotland international opened up about his first impressions of the new boss and his managerial style.
‘He’s been really, really good and he’s been good with the schedule, making sure we have enough sleep and the times we’re in we can prepare,’ he told Sky Sports.
‘[He has] more steel behind closed doors, very firm, very driven, he knows what he wants in meetings. He’s very, very clear.
‘That’s the way it is in football, to get your point across you have to be clear and forceful and if players aren’t doing what he’s asking then he’s not shy to tell him.
‘First impressions are very, very good, we’ve obviously had a good result against Crystal Palace and now hopefully we can move forward with that and win more football games.’
