Man Utd midfielder Nemanja Matic has made just 22 minutes of League football this season. But insists, there is no issue with club manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Matic, has seen himself displaced from the starting XI, with Solskjaer opting for a central midfield duo, of Paul Pogba and Scott Mctominay.
The 31-year-old’s first and only involvement in United’s matchday business, was a late substitution from the bench last week. With several reports now claiming there is perhaps a little problem between the Serbian and the Norwegian manager.
However, speaking ahead of Serbia’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Portugal on Saturday. Nemanja Matic was quick to trash talks on an unrest between himself and the manager, saying that there was ‘no problem’.
“In the first two or three games he determined the team without me.” He said.
“I work as hard as I can, we respect the decision, it is mine to show him that he was wrong and to bring me back to where I belong.
“There is no problem. I told him I disagreed with him, but that he had to decide the team.”
Nemanja Matic added: “I have been in football for a long time, I have played almost all the games for all the clubs in the last 10 years.
“In order for me to play, one had to sit on the bench and accept that fact, and so do I now. The coach must opt for the team that will fight for the title, and if he does not win, he bears the responsibility.”
