Give me a second to wipe the smug grin off my face so I can write this. Manchester United fans have turned on Nemanja Matic. They’ve had enough.
Matic won two Premier League titles during his time as a Chelsea player, but us fans began to grow frustrated with him towards the end of his time at Stamford Bridge.
He grew lazy in the defensive phase and his distribution in possession was not good enough to justify it. His reputation alone banked us a huge bag of cash following his sale to Man United.
Though the United faithful were keen to convince themselves that they’d landed one hell of a midfielder, they have fast discovered the reality – he’s rather ordinary.
Following their 3-1 defeat in the Manchester derby, many fans’ patience grew thin with Matic, and they didn’t resist from slating him on Twitter. Here’s how some of the fans reacted to his performance on Twitter…
Nemanja Matic, that is horrific defending.

Sir Bobby Charlton didn’t score 249 goals for this great club to sit in the stands at 81-years-old and watch Matić run around in a circle taking eleven touches whilst he has three options to pass to.

Matic shows why the board were so reluctant to spend ridiculous money on 29 year olds. Absolute waste of money in the long run.

Matic the biggest example of how outdated Mourinho’s management is. You don’t sign 30 year olds. For this reason. We got 4 months out of him. Now he’s deadwood. More deadwood.

Nemanja Matic is finished how can Jose not see this? Fred needs to start!

Matic stood there waiting for Christmas. Awful defending.

Matic always losing the central midfielder. Same story different week.

Matic needs to be dropped, he’s rapidly declining every week.

It’s the way that Matić jogs back when we lose possession. He fully just cba, or he’s physically unable to sprint

Matic is one reason we are losing games this season.. Its like we are playing with a man down.

Matic is the only player in the world who need 305 touches before he pass to the opponent. #MCIMUN
