Matic calls Manchester United one of the world’s three biggest clubs, agree?
Nemanja Matic told Sky Sports that Manchester United are one of the three biggest clubs in the world after leaving Chelsea in the transfer market this summer.
Matic, who also spent three years playing with Benfica, won the Premier League title twice at Stamford Bridge once under Jose Mourinho’s guidance in the 2014-15 season and once under Antonio Conte last season.
He made his full debut for Manchester United as his side grabbed a 4-0 win over West Ham United, earning the man of the match award.
“Sure, everyone knows what Manchester United is. When you say Manchester United, it feels different. Chelsea is also a big club, Benfica is the biggest club in Portugal. But Manchester is Manchester, “he said.
“When I came here on the first day, I could feel that the guys at the club helped me every day if I needed anything. And supporters are very important for this club, “he added.
“After each training session, they are waiting for us outside the practice site to take pictures, signing, so I think this club is one of the biggest clubs in the world. Maybe you have two or three clubs similar to United, but Manchester is one of the biggest clubs in the world for sure, “he continued.
Rival conditions are less favorable
Meanwhile, Chris Smalling believes Manchester United will benefit from a tranquil locker room this season while some of their rivals experience turmoil.
Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham, are currently troubled by future issues of Diego Costa, Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Danny Rose. While Manchester United are calm with their squad.
“It’s hard to have 25 players who all get along but I’ve found it in our dressing room. Everyone was joking, we were playing music and everyone was laughing, “Smalling said.
“I heard a lot of stories from the club, so I think we are very blessed to have a dressing room like we have today,” he concluded. (Source: ESPN)
