Mourinho: Matic is a Genius

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho praised his team newcomer Nemanja Matic.

“In my opinion, to play simple in that position is genius,” MU boss told a press conference after the former Chelsea midfielder’s debut for the team.

“He’s a genius because he makes everything so simple, the team runs, the ball runs, he’s fantastic in his position.


“The way he plays, he plays with his brain, of course he needs physicality to be a at the top of his game, but obviously no pre-season, no pre-season, it’s not easy,” the manager concluded.

Nemanja Matic joined Manchester United from Chelsea earlier in July for 44.7 million euros.
