Speaking to Sky Sports on Thursday after the Chelsea draw, Nemanja Matic said: “It was an improvement, we played against a very good team. They have great players and a great manager.
“It was an equal game and 1–1 was a fair result. It is always tough when you play against good teams but we looked much better than last couple of weeks. We showed we didn’t give up, we showed some character.
“For me, it has been a pleasure to play at Old Trafford for five years and I will do my best to help the team. Manchester United will stay forever in my heart, along with Chelsea. There has to be better times ahead. Man United is a big club, expectations are high.”
Man United’s game against Brentford on Monday will be Matic’s last chance to play in front of the home supporters.
The 33-year-old will be leaving the club at the end of the 2021/22 season after spending five years at the club.
