Manchester United fans react to Nemanja Matic’s performance vs AC Milan

Posted on


Manchester United fans were furious with Nemanja Matic’s performance vs AC Milan despite eventually winning the fixture through penalties.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have won all their pre-season matches in what can only be considered a successful tour.

United opened the scoring after a wonderful solo goal from Marcus Rashford but Milan soon dominated after equalising.

Matic looked off the pace entirely which is a concern in a pre-season match against opponents who were behind Solskjaer’s side in terms of fitness.

The Serbian midfielder’s lack of mobility has seen him exposed in the legendary Norwegian’s dynamic team and so supporters have called for him to be dropped.

The concern for Manchester United fans is how their midfield lacks serious depth and it appears Matic will play against Chelsea regardless of his form.

Paul Pogba has suffered from back spasms and may recover in time but given Solskjaer’s pivot system, it’s unlikely Scott McTominay will feature over the former Chelsea man.

It appears United have forgotten to invest in a real, mobile defensive midfielder this summer and that may come back to haunt them.

Matic’s experience might be the only reason he’s still at Old Trafford as Solskjaer’s squad is rather youthful otherwise.
