Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has undergone surgery after sustaining a groin injury that was causing significant pain during games. McTominay has played a part in both Manchester United games this season, starting the first and coming off the bench in their 1-1 draw against Southampton at the weekend. He was omitted from the squad announced by Scotland for their 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
“Scott has undergone surgery for an ongoing groin injury that was causing significant pain when playing,” read a club statement.”Having tried all other treatment options in pre-season, surgery was deemed necessary to resolve the issue. We hope to have him back soon.”
McTominay made 49 appearances for the club last season and went on to represent Scotland at Euro 2020. There has been no timescale set for the return of the Manchester United midfielder.
“Just to let you all know I’ve had minor surgery on an issue which has needed managing for the last couple of months, I hate missing games so to be missing Wolves on the weekend & the international break is so disappointing but that’s part & parcel of the game.” Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay posted on social media after undergoing an operation for a groin injury.
