Chelsea legend Frank Lampard considers Nemanja Matic to Manchester United “strange”.
The former Blues midfielder was surprised to see the Serbian midfielder moving to Manchester United, with Chelsea providing a key player to a rival.
Lampard commented this move speaking to BT Sport:
“It’s a strange one.
“I think he was such a huge part of Chelsea’s play last year. Kante and Matic were the base of the midfield and let the wing-backs fly on.
“Obviously Fabregas was a big player for them too and [with] Bakayoko, it remains to be seen if he can be that positional player Matic was.
“One of the frustrations is that, and I think Conte will want to bring in someone else in midfield.”
