Nemanja Matic has explained why he’s excited to get started at Manchester United after completing his move from Chelsea on a three-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year.
He has won a number of club and individual honours including league titles in both England and Portugal and has been convinced by a reunion with Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese boss has showcased his belief in the 28-year-old, buying him twice and claimed he’s the type of player we need at Old Trafford, as the side’s new number 31.
Speaking about his move, Nemanja couldn’t wait to get started with Mourinho.
“I have enjoyed my time at Chelsea and would like to thank the club and the fans for their support. I cannot wait to meet my new team-mates and to start training with them.
“This is a very exciting time for the club and I am looking forward to playing my part in creating more history for this great club.”
He’s an exceptional player and Mourinho will be glad to have a player he’s previously worked with under his belt at Old Trafford.
Matic understands how Mourinho can push his game further and it seems like he couldn’t refuse when the Portuguese boss came calling this summer.
