Matic on why he has opted for Old Trafford switch
Manchester United’s latest acquisition has explained why he has given the green light to an Old Trafford switch.
Following several weeks of speculation, Nemanja Matic finally completed his transfer to United on Monday.
The 28-year-old has agreed to become a Red Devil after being withdrawn from Antonio Conte’s Chelsea plans for the upcoming season.
And speaking on his $52.8 million move, the midfielder revealed Jose Mourinho played a vital part in his decision.
“Manchester is one of the biggest clubs in the world (but) also my wish was to train with Jose,” Matic said
“Of course when you have a coach like him and a club like Manchester is you don’t need to think a lot so my decision was very easy.
“I am very happy because we will work again together. He is a great coach and, when I worked with him before, he always took the best from me and I improve if I work with him.
“When the coach wants you to come to the club, it gives you more motivation, more possibility and I will try to…not try, I will, for sure, give my best to show that I deserve to be in this club and part of this group.”http://www.fanchesterunited.com/2017/07/52-8m-star-confirms-agreed-deal-join-united/
