Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic appeared to hit back at manager Jose Mourinho – in the middle of a press conference involving the pair.
After a turbulent 10 days for Mourinho, he appeared in front of the press ahead of Tuesday night’s Champions League clash against Valencia.
The Portuguese refused to clarify rumours of a poor relationship between himself and Ed Woodward.
During the press conference, Mourinho also made the alarming statement: “Some players care more than others.”
However, Matic responded by suggesting that he disagrees with his manager, stating: “I don’t believe any player goes onto the pitch to not give his best.
“We played badly on Saturday but I don’t believe any player doesn’t give his best.
“I believe I played one of my worst games for Manchester United but I look in the mirror and ask what I did wrong and everybody does the same.”
Matic added: “When you play for Manchester United everyone expects you win the games.
“When you don’t win two games in a row, there is more attention on you. We know that.”
