Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay chooses to play for Scotland over England

Mourinho expects Ibrahimovic to leave-'We all think it's his last season

Mourinho expects Ibrahimovic to leave-'We all think it's his last season

The 21-year-old has made six appearances in the Premier League for the Red Devils so far this season and has been showing maturity beyond his years with his assured displays.

The English FA had been in talks with his representatives for several months, but the 21-year-old has chosen to go with his heart and it will respect his decision.

He has warned McTominay to expect a "very different" experience playing for Scotland, who have friendlies against Costa Rica on 23 March and Hungary on 27 March in McLeish's first games back in charge.

McTominay has not yet represented Scotland at any level but attended training camps with the country's younger sides and previously admitted: "I'm probably more Scottish than I am English".

McTominay is answering an emotional pull towards Scotland - his father is proudly Scottish - and he believes Scotland offer him the chance to carve out a significant global career.

And Mourinho fuelled the fire of the global allegiance debate last month when he said Scotland should pick McTominay "because it looks like England is missing him". That's what struck me when I met him as a young player.

Kourtney Kardashian Calls Khloé a "Pregnant Wh*re" in Explosive Fight
The mom-to-be has been posting photos from the trip of herself cradling her baby bump , which for some reason ignited a backlash. Can't argue though, it's working for her! Khloe Kardashian surprised her fans unusual, like a pregnant woman outfit.

I think his own heart is more important than my advice, because my advice is purely from the career point of view. "He's a great guy, and he gets the best out of players".

"Maybe Man United and Fergie have influenced him?"

"Trying to fight to have minutes with Manchester United, which is not easy, and then national team will be just a outcome of his work at the club". "It sounds like his father has picked it more than him".

"Who will I support in the World Cup qualifiers?"

Fletcher left United in 2015, when McTominay was still emerging, but he has been encouraged by what he has heard from United players and coaches.

"Going forward, it's up to Alex McLeish, I've not spoken to him yet but I'm sure I will do in the near future and see what the plans are".
