Steven Gerrard sends message to Man United fans about Nemanja Matic
Steven Gerrard believes that Nemanja Matic will end up being a brilliant signing for Manchester United this season
Steven Gerrard believes that Nemanja Matic will prove to be a brilliant signing for Manchester United this season.
The Serbian midfielder joined the Red Devils from Chelsea last week and made his debut for Jose Mourinho’s men during the 2-1 Uefa Super Cup loss to Real Madrid on Tuesday night.
Matic looks like he’ll go straight into Manchester United’s first team to play the holding midfield role as Mourinho prepares for his second season in charge at Old Trafford.
And former Liverpool captain Gerrard believes that Matic will end up being a fantastic signing for the Red Devils as the 2017-18 Premier League campaign draws ever nearer.
Speaking on BT Sport on Tuesday night, Gerrard said: “He’s a huge signing.
“You can see signs of what Jose Mourinho is doing at Manchester United (is similar) to what he did at Chelsea, when he built a big, powerful and strong team that’s capable of winning the big trophies.”
Manchester United are now preparing for their Premier League opener against West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
The Red Devils will be hoping to improve their top-flight form this season after their disappointing run in the Premier League last term left them in sixth place in the table.
Manchester United won both the EFL Cup and Europa League in Mourinho’s first season in charge at Old Trafford last term.
