Paul Scholes has admitted that he’s been impressed by Nemanja Matic’s strong start to life at Manchester United this season.

Matic signed for the Red Devils in the summer transfer window after he was allowed to leave Chelsea by Blues boss Antonio Conte.

The 29-year-old has slotted seamlessly into the first team at Old Trafford and has started all eight of the Red Devils’ Premier League games so far this season.

Matic knows the Premier League well, and he played a vital role in helping Chelsea to win the title under Jose Mourinho back in the 2014-15 campaign.

And former Manchester United midfielder Scholes has been very impressed by the way Matic has quickly adapted to life at Old Trafford.

Speaking on BT Sport on Wednesday night, Scholes said:

Matic will be expecting to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon with a trip to face newly-promoted Huddersfield.

The Red Devils are currently second in the Premier League table and two points behind leaders Manchester City after eight games of the new campaign.

Manchester United held Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield in their most recent top-flight outing last weekend.
