Nemanja Matic has signed a new contract that will keep him at old Trafford until 2023. The Serb has been in impressive form for Manchester united ever since the premier league project restart where he has managed to provide cover to Manchester United’s impressive midfield duo Pogba and Fernandez.
Matic joined United in 2017 from Chelsea in a £35 deal that got him reacquainted with his former Chelsea boss Mourinho before he got sacked in November 2018.
The Serbian international who has so far made 114 appearances for his club had previously looked to be on his way out of old Trafford because of limited playing time, but after the project restart, Matic seemed reborn as his impressive performances have earned him trust from his Manchester united bosses that he deserves a new deal.
Matic in his words said, “I am very happy that I will continue to be part of this great club. As a player, I still have a lot more to give and achieve in my career and to do that with Manchester United will be a huge honour.”
“This is a really exciting team to be part of, we have a good balance of youth and experience within the squad and there is great comradery amongst the group. This is a key part of the season and we are playing well. We will continue to fight to finish the season on a high and make our amazing supporters proud.” he added.
On the other hand, Ole Gunnar solkjear was delighted to keep the experienced Serb in his squad. The gaffer will be hoping that Matic can take the young midfielders at Old Trafford through his wing and guide them to the right path.
Here is what Ole had to say “I am delighted that Nemanja has signed a new contract, I know his experience, professionalism and leadership will be invaluable to this young talented group.
“We have great strength in midfield and Nemanja’s attributes are a key part of that. Nemanja has been here for three seasons now and really understands the values of playing for Manchester United.
“He remains hugely ambitious and determined which will be vital as we look to achieve our aims over the coming years.”
