Former Chelsea player Nemanja Matic insists he has nothing to prove when his new club Manchester United visit Stamford Bridge on Sunday, the Guardian reports.
The Serbian was sold by the Blues for £40m in the summer, as reported by the Telegraph. Since his move, Man United have benefitted from the midfielder’s impact for the team.
Many have disagreed with the Blues decision to sell Matic, as he played an important role in our league title triumph last season. As per the Guardian, the 29-year-old believes he has moved on after the success he had at Chelsea.
Matic is quoted by the Guardian saying:
“I feel when I played there, I showed them my quality. We won the title twice and also two cups, so I don’t have to prove to them anything.”
Since N’Golo Kante’s hamstring injury, Antonio Conte’s side have looked unbalanced in midfield. Tiemoue Bakayoko and Cesc Fabregas showed their frailties as a partnership in Tuesday night’s 3-0 loss to Roma.
It’s no doubt that Matic would have been a more than useful player in our squad this season. The midfield partnership he had with Kante bossed many opponents last season.
However, it’s also time for us to move on in search of a much-needed win against United.
