Eight full matches in the Premier League, three full matches in the Champions League, not a single minute missed so far, that’s Nemanja Matic, who talked to a magazine of his native Serbia and said several interesting things.
Mourinho is a brand, and the best coach I’ve ever worked with. Sometimes it isn’t easy to work with him, because he always demands more. Even when you play the best match in your career, he considers that you can play better in the next match
the Serbian told Elevate, talking about Jose Mourinho, adding
I cooperated excellently with him at Chelsea, and the fact that Mourinho is the coach at Manchester was the decisive factor in choosing my new environment. Privately he’s completely different from the way he is perceived by the general public. This is a man who possesses all human virtues. He’s not at all cold or conceited, as he is presented in the media.
Talking about United’s targets this season, the Serbia international avoided pronouncing them, but he indirectly admitted that the Red Devils are eyeing the top in every competition they’re playing.
Mourinho has created an excellent group of players with huge potential, and everything is there for us to achieve good results. I don’t want to talk about the goals of the club, but when I mention Manchester United I think the ambitions are clear to everyone
Matic said. The 29-year-old talked about his life in Manchester, and also how he feels to be part of this particular club.
The fact that I’m playing for United is the pinnacle of my career and of everything I’ve achieved in football. I really like it in Manchester, and the family has got used to the city. I needed very little to make me happy in my new environment, just to be together with my wife Aleksandra, my six-year-old son Filip and three-year-old daughter Tea. The children have a good school in Manchester, and I’m particularly glad that my son started football training. He has a place reserved in United’s junior ranks
dad Matic said, happy with his choice to move to Manchester.
