Scott McTominay has worn the No.39 jersey at Man Utd since the Old Trafford set-up hack, and the Scottish International has no intention of changing despite some iconic numbers ready to take over.


What did Scott McTominay say?

The 24-year-old midfielder, another product of the famous academic Red Devils system, burst onto the scene when he handed his big break to Mourinho. He is now up to 133 competitive appearances and has become a key part of Ole Gunnar’s plans, with his performance being pushed to new heights in 2020-21, but there are no plans on his part to drop the roster numbers from the high 30s. Scott McTominay, answering a question during a Q&A on United’s official website, said that it is obvious that number 39 is special when you first get your number. According to Scott no one ever said to change his number, there was not a single conversation about changing his number. Not three years, two years, or a year ago. Nothing was said about it and he is perfectly fine with it. He never even asked himself according to Scott McTominay and never thought or brought it up in conversation to change his number and he is perfectly fine, so 39. Scott McTominay sees 39 everywhere now and he can’t get it out of his head!


Available rooms in United

Red Devils currently have 1-11 spots filled in their composition. However, Juan Mata has yet to sign a new contract and may vacate No.8 this summer, while serious questions were also asked of No.4 Phil Jones and his future. Elsewhere, 12, 14, 15 and 20 are all tackles, but 16 may be better for Scott McTominay. He will follow in glorious footsteps if this jersey is picked up, with a couple of iconic midfielders previously tackling the number. Roy Keane, a seven-time Premier League title holder, spent 12 memorable years as United’s No.16. This jersey was donated to Michael Carrick, who filled it for another 12 years when he collected five champion titles and a Champions League crown.
