“It is crucial to have guys who talk in your team,” said McTominay.

“I will use someone like Wolves’ Conor Coady as an example, he never shuts up the whole game. He is so vocal.


“Even if you’re not necessarily always saying the right things, you’re constantly involved in the game and wanting the best for your team-mates.

“That’s what I want to keep adding to my game.”

McTominay could face Coady tonight

Of course McTominay could share a pitch with Coady tonight when England face Scotland at 8pm at Wembley.

McTominay will likely start for Scotland and while Coady will expect to start on the bench, he might get into the team if Gareth Southgate opts for a back three to match the Scotland system.

Regardless, Coady will be a big presence and a vocal leader in the dressing room and that’s what he brings to any team he’s part of.
