Nemanja Matic aims to search Bruno Fernandes as he uncovers what the Man Utd stars are


Nemanja Matic aimed to shamelessly dig at Bruno Fernandes, saying: “I knew he was good – even if he played for Sporting! “

Matic used to play for bitter Sporting rival Benfica before moving to Chelsea and then to Manchester United.

He continued to keep an eye on the Portuguese league and says he knew Fernandes was going to be a success before signing for the Red Devils.

However, he admits that he was surprised at how quickly the midfielder settled.

“Because I’m the Portuguese league, I knew he was good – even if he played for Sporting,” Matic told Football Beyond Borders.

“But I’m very surprised that he adapted so quickly to the Premier League.

“He brings us a lot of qualities, like the confidence he has on the field, he always knows what he wants to do with the ball. “

Matic is one of the oldest chefs in the United locker room and commands a lot of respect from his young teammates.

The Serb says he generally talks to players his age, including Paul Pogba, David de Gea and Juan Mata, but said everyone gets along well.

“There is not a guy who is not a good person in our locker room,” he added.

“I’m 31 years old now, and some of the players are 10 years younger than me. I talk more to players my age, like Paul, David and Juan, but I settled next to Mason Greenwood in the locker room, so we ‘we also need to know each other. ”
