Matic hits back at strong Mourinho statement during Man Utd presser

during a training session ahead of their Group H match against Valencia in UEFA Champions League at Aon Training Complex on October 1, 2018 in Manchester, England.

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.”
