Andy Mitten har snakket med Scott McTominay.
“Where I want to get to is being that player in the team where you’re a leader, you’re the one telling people. You’re driving the standards,” he adds.
“Nemanja and Paul have been so good to me,” he says of Matic and Pogba. “I learn from them, the small details not just on the pitch but about life and how to handle yourself on and off the pitch, how to be around fans, to respect the fans.
"I’ve been brought up to be humble; to have good standards, anyway, but young players can get side tracked.
"Nemanja tells me to keep my feet on the ground, to concentrate on football and not to be concerned about material things like cars.”
That is Matic, who has puts a sizeable proportion of his wages back into making his hometown in Serbia a better place. “I love Nemanja, he’s like a big brother to me,” McTominay adds.
“Kieran and Michael are so good,” says the midfielder. “Incredible attention to detail, planning and lots of advice.
"If I don’t listen and learn then someone else will and take my place – my dad always told me that.”
“There’s a lot of things I know I can improve on,” he said. "I’m constantly working. I don’t want to sit on games that I’ve played, I want to get to the next level.”
