This current Manchester United midfielder was compared to the Brazilian legend and World Cup winner, Ronaldinho, on social media.

Without the football, there are scant things to be entertained by for Manchester United fans.

Of course in the bigger picture of things, with the current state of the world, football has fallen by the wayside in terms of priorities.

However, for many it’s a great source of escape.

And so avid footballs fans around the world are trying to fill the void of live football with a plethora of alternative options.

Some watch classic games on the internet through live-streams, others read books about their beloved club’s former glories or watch documentaries.

And those who miss the current set of players follow their social media accounts with great interest.

The situation is unique in the sense that both fans and players are experiencing the same sort of foreboding and isolation.

United players have posted several videos of how they are keeping themselves entertained during their self-isolation.

Of course for footballers, they also have to maintain their fitness and continue to follow strict guidelines and regimes in order to make sure they are in the best condition when the football returns.

Scott McTominay who has become a cult favourite at Old Trafford in recent times is the same.

The Scottish international had only just returned from an injury and looked back to his best, scoring some great goals from range against Club Brugge and Manchester City, before the season was abruptly suspended.

The young midfielder posted a video of himself on his Instagram account via Manchester Evening News where he showed off his first control and touch.

United fans were left impressed by the Scotsman’s fine touch and it led to Scott McTominay being facetiously compared to Ronaldinho as well as former United legend Dimitar Berbatov.

While the remarks were obviously hyperbolic and taken in jest, McTominay’s video was certainly impressive.

It is further proof that the 23 year old is slowly but surely becoming a key United player.

Without him in the side, the Red Devils often struggled during the months of January and December.

When the football returns, United fans will be hoping Scott McTominay shows off more of his impressive skills.
