New Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic takes a little dig at his former club, Chelsea.
Speaking to Sky Sports after his super debut at Old Trafford against West Ham last Sunday, the Serbian midfielder claimed the Red Devils are one step above the Blues:
“Everyone knows what Manchester United is about. It is different.
“Chelsea is a big club, Benfica are the biggest club in Portugal. But Manchester United is Manchester United.”
“Maybe you have two or three clubs similar to United, but it is one of the biggest clubs in the world for sure.
“When I came here for the first day, I could feel that the people at the club help you every day if you need something and supporters are very important for this club.”
Matic spoke also about José Mourinho, who strongly wanted to reunite with him at Old Trafford after bringing him back to Chelsea in January 2014:
“He was very important for me,” the Serbian said about the Special One.
“When I decided to come to Manchester, he was a reason to come here.
“My decision was very quick and very clear. You don’t need to think a lot about if you are going to come.”
