Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Scotland boss Steve Clarke will be without McTominay for key games
‘Scott has undergone surgery for an ongoing groin injury that was causing significant pain when playing,’ the club wrote in a statement.
‘Having tried all other treatment options in pre-season, surgery was deemed necessary to resolve the issue.
‘We hope to have him back soon.’
The midfielder will miss United’s clash with Wolves on Sunday at Molineux, as well as Scotland’s Word Cup qualifiers against Denmark, Moldova and Austria.
The Scotland star added a note to his fans on Instagram: ‘Just to let you all know I’ve had minor surgery on an issue which has needed managing for the last couple of months.
The 24-year-old made an impressive start to the season against Leeds on the opening day
McTominay will be desperate to help pull his nation to a World Cup finals in the qualifiers
‘I hate missing games so to be missing Wolves on the weekend & the international break is so disappointing but that’s part & parcel of the game.
‘Wishing all the boys the best of luck & I will be back sooner than you think.’
Fred and Nemanja Matic began the St Mary’s disappointment and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will likely pick the Sebian once more at Molineux.
The Norwegian boss was impressed with McTominay against Leeds, singling-out the scot for praise after a disrupted pre-season.
‘Scott running on was a big thing. He’s not played more than 20 minutes in pre-season, and he’s played them at centre-back,’ Solskjaer said after the Old Trafford match-up.
‘It was one of those where you kept him under wraps because you knew this was a game for him. Scott times his arrival great, like Scholesy did. Scott is a beast, physically, he can run all day. He was excellent, a proper man out there.’
