McTominay, one of the most acclaimed players in the United squad today, is known for his diligence and positivity, but in the eyes of Manchester United's top performer Paul Parker, this is the biggest problem for the Reds at the moment, and if McTominay's level of players becomes the mainstay of United, it only means that the team's level has fallen too far.
Parker is the dominant right-back for Ferguson's first-generation champions, Manchester United, and in his eyes McTominay is just a reckless man who \"runs around and kicks around.\" \"McTominay is typical of the problem,\" Parker said.\" He's just running around and trying to kick people, and that's got a lot of credit. He's like the modern-day Robbie Savage (the tough midfielder of the Premier League year, known for running and kicking), but you need more than that [at Manchester United].
“If it is said that United miss McTominay, they are not true United fans. The reason for his injury was that he tried to kick someone and hurt himself. If people think it's Manchester United, then it means what they haven't seen before.'
Parker also criticised Manchester United's current midfield:\" I'm surprised that Solskja hasn't thanked him yet because every time I look at his midfield, it hurts his brain cells because there is no midfield at all at Manchester United. There's absolutely no guarantee that it will work no matter who he plays in midfield, and if you play forward at Manchester United, you know you can't get the ball. If you're a full-back, you know the ball will come straight back from the midfield. The problem with Manchester United is midfield, they've got no midfield.'
