Prior to Saturday's Premier League match against Brentford, former Red David Beckham was the talk of the town.
Becks' new hit Netflix documentary had just hit the screens of millions of families across the world and it shined a light on our Treble success in 1999 and many more amazing memories from decades gone by.
But by the time the final whistle blew, and the Reds had snatched a victory over the Bees, one man's name was on the tip of the tongues of most United fans: Scott McTominay.
Scott - an Academy graduate like Beckham - came off the bench and scored two goals in injury-time to take the Reds from 1-0 down to 2-1 up in a matter of moments.
In his post-match interview, a passionate McTominay revealed that he had been watching Becks' documentary, reiterating that the reason our players do this is for those behind the scenes, from receptionist Kath Phipps to the chefs.
“I was watching the David Beckham documentary last night and you can see all the history and the people behind the club and that’s who the lads do it for and that’s what means the most,” Scott said.
“It’s so important that we all come together and that’s what it means at this football club - we do it for the people.
“That’s the same as me, I’m a fan so I want us to do well.”
Becks resonates with this view, and expressed as much in a comment on the club's Instagram account following the game.
"It's what it's always been about," he wrote, in reply to our video of McTominay's interview.
