‘He needs to be sold!’ Man United fans lay into 30-year-old after derby day horror show

Well, I think it’s fair to say that we can all agree the best team won today. Manchester United looked way off the pace from minute one, as Jose Mourinho could only stand and watch.

The Red Devils struggled to get any sort of foothold in the match, but for some dodgy goalkeeping from Ederson which gave United a glimmer of hope, that opening didn’t last long, though…

Perhaps the worst player of all? Nemanja Matic. The midfielder was literally a bystander for the most part, as Manchester City’s midfield just ran rings around him. At times, it genuinely looked as if he wasn’t even playing, which has to be a major concern for the manager going forward.

At 30, he looks absolutely finished. Matic is slow, positionally poor and not switched on mentally. Against this City team, you cannot afford to make mistakes, he, was the root of all our problems – and that rubs off on the rest of the team.

As you’d imagine, Matic got his fair share of stick on social media and rightly so. He was borderline disgraceful throughout and perhaps the best course of action is to sit him out for a game or two.
