Manchester United fans react to Nemanja Matic performance vs Real Madrid

Manchester United’s Super Cup hopes were shattered by an excellent Real Madrid side in Skopje, Macedonia on Tuesday night. On the whole, Los Blancos always looked one step ahead, but credit to Jose Mourinho’s men for making a real game out of it.

Perhaps the best player in Red Devils colours was Nemanja Matic, which certainly bodes well given the fact that he’s had no pre-season under his belt.

The Serbia international was absolutely everywhere, throwing his weight around and winning tackles all over the pitch. On top of that, his forward passing was exquisite as he got United moving in the right direction against.

As previously mentioned, with more minutes, he’ll only get better. I just cannot understand why Chelsea would let him leave, particularly to a direct title rival this season, and I’m so glad that we’ve snapped him up.

This is a man who just makes our whole team much more balanced, and already, he’s proving his worth. He simply has to start in our weekend game against West Ham United, and hopefully, he can put in a similar level of performance.

Twitter was awash with praise for the 29-year-old midfielder, and he more than deserves all the plaudits coming his way. Check out some of the best tweets below:
