Manchester United have revealed that Scott McTominay will miss the trip to Wolves on Sunday after having surgery on his groin after playing with pain in recent months.
This week, McTominay was left out of Scotland’s national squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers, and on Thursday his club came up with an update on his fitness.
A statement on the club’s website stated: “Scott has been operated on for an ongoing groin injury that caused significant pain while playing. After trying all other treatment options in the pre-season, surgery was considered necessary to solve the problem. We hope to get him back soon. ”
McTominay started United’s opening game of the season, the 5-1 win over Leeds, but he was limited to a cameo role in their 1-1 draw at Southampton last weekend. The 24-year-old midfielder expressed frustration at missing the upcoming Premier League match in Molineux and Scotland’s matches with Denmark, Moldova and Austria, but he promised to be back soon.
He said on Instagram: “Just to tell you all that I have had surgery less of a problem that has been necessary to deal with the last few months. I hate missing matches, so missing Wolves this weekend, and the international break is so disappointing, but it’s part of the game. I wish all the boys good luck and I will return sooner than you think. ”
