Manchester United star Nemanja Matic has risked facing the wrath of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after being caught liking a comment on one of his Instagram posts following the disappointing draw to Southampton.
The experienced Serbian was brought on as a substitute but couldn’t help inspire his teammates to a win despite their opponents playing with ten men.
United’s 1-1 draw saw them slump to eighth place already with four games having been played so far.
Matic hasn’t started any of those matches with Solskjaer opting to pair Paul Pogba with Scott McTominay as he has done all pre-season.
Reports had emerged earlier of the defensive midfielder’s wish to leave if he can’t be granted first-team football with AC Milan said to have been interested.
The European transfer window ends tomorrow but it’s unlikely Solskjaer will allow an already light in numbers midfield from getting even lighter.
However, Matic will likely face some form of punishment unless he can prove he was hacked or wasn’t responsible.
Eric Bailly previously was hacked in a similar way with the hackers going on to like some rather insulting comments or posts.
Nonetheless, this mess is unlikely to help Matic win his place back in the starting XI and after his less than inspiring performance as a substitute, he’s probably fallen further down the pecking order.
