Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has admitted he had an angry argument with Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar, claiming there were “words that your mum or dad might not like to hear”.
The Scotland international started and finished the win over PSG in France, before also being named in the XI for the return leg at Old Trafford.
However, that night didn’t go to plan as a Neymar brace handed the Parisians a 3-1 victory. McTominay tried his best to contain the Brazilian and was involved in a row after the two came together.
He admitted that Neymar “lost his head” in the incident, but suggested there is no lingering bad blood.
“I do quite like verbal sparring with opponents,” he said in his column for the Athletic . “I had a run-in with Neymar when Paris Saint-Germain came to Old Trafford last season. He ended up grabbing me.
“You could see his head was gone for a moment in the way he was so aggressive. There was a lot of talking going on — words that your mum or dad might not like to hear.
“But that is part of the enjoyment of football, of competition. He’s trying to beat me, and I’m trying to stop him.”
Scotland are set to face England on Friday night at Wembley as the Euro 2020 group stage continues.
