Man United fans react to Matic’s woeful display vs AC Milan

Manchester United managed to end their pre-season tour unbeaten, winning all six games albeit the latest against AC Milan coming on penalties.

For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players it’s a huge confidence-booster going into a massive campaign for the Baby Faced Assassin. Some good signings have been made, while there is still work to be done…

Amongst the areas of need is a new midfielder, that’s because Nemanja Matic just hasn’t looked good over the last twelve months or so…

Against AC Milan he was the weak link once again. There’s an alarming lack of pace there, while I’m just not sure what he brings to the table anymore. At one time he looked unstoppable in that holding-midfield role but these days he turns like the Titanic…

Anyway, as you can imagine, the Red Devils fans took to Twitter to display their unhappiness at the 31-year-old, with some claiming he’s finished at this level while begging for Scott McTominay to be the regular starter.

Mobility is so important in the modern-day game and although he may not be the most naturally-talented player in the world, McTominay is willing to cover every blade of grass for the cause.

For his experience and nous, Matic should stick around as a back-up/rotational option, while also having a positive influence in the dressing room. I don’t think he’ll be starting with any regularity this season, though…
