Matic Frustrated by Man Utd Role Under Ole

Written by Our Correspondent

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic admits he has become frustrated sitting on the bench this season.

Matic, the 31-year-old midfielder who joined United from Chelsea for £40m in 2017, made his first start of the season in Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Leicester, coming in for the injured Paul Pogba.

But, up until this weekend, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, had been favouring a midfield pivot of Pogba and Scott McTominay.

“Of course [it has been frustrating],” Matic said. “I want to play, I always give my best for the team.

“The coach is the man who picks the team and when you are on the bench you are not happy, but I am trying to convince him to change his mind and pick me to play.

“The season is long. [Against Leicester] as you saw I played, and we won the game.
