Not many players have the chance to play for the top clubs but when you have the chance to don the colours of one of the top three clubs in the world, then it’s always gotta be a dream achieved.
Nemanja Matic must be enjoying his new environment. The Serbia midfielder swapped Chelsea for Manchester United in a £35m move this summer, and he already made his presence felt with a man-of-the-match performance on his Premier League debut against West Ham United.
The 29-year-old has however described Manchester as one of the top three biggest clubs in the world and arguably the biggest club he has ever played for.
Matic told Sky Sports, “Definitely, everyone knows what Manchester United is about,” he said. “When you say Manchester United, it is different. Also, Chelsea is a big club, Benfica is the biggest club in Portugal. But Manchester is Manchester.
“When I came here for the first day, I could feel that the people at the club help you every day if you need something and supporters are very important for this club.
“After every training session, they are waiting for us outside the training ground to take pictures, to give a signature so I think the club is one of the biggest in the world. Maybe you have two or three clubs similar to United, but Manchester is one of the biggest clubs in the world for sure.”
