Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick says Scott McTominay is a shining example to young footballers.

McTominay has made 17 appearances in all competitions for United this season, and for their upcoming games against Costa Rica and Hungary.

Carrick, who will , hailed the 21-year-old`s hard work and focus which he believes is giving McTominay the best chance of fulfilling an established career.

I think it is quite refreshing to look at Scott and see how he deals with it, Carrick said ahead of United`s .

He goes about his business, he comes in, he is always in doing extra training. He`s desperate to do well and he`s always looking for those little things to improve on.

All the glitz and the glamour that can surround young players these days, he doesn`t seem too interested in that, which is fantastic especially at this stage of his career.

It`s about making a career, that`s how it is. You can`t live like you`ve had a career before you`ve had the career - you`ve got to earn it.

But he`s still got some way to go to fully establish himself as a big player for this club but so far he`s on a great track, he`s given himself the best possible chance to fulfil that.

He`s a shining example to kids looking up to how you can be within yourself and how you are coping, your body language, mentality. He`s done great.
