Man Utd midfielder Matic: Good knowing Lukaku off the mark

13 August 2017, 08:22 | Charlene Valdez

"If I done a interview like that 2 days before the season started Maxi miller and Stevie P would have been having more than words with me".

"It was certainly a position that Manchester United as a team needed to strengthen, and they've gone and done it with Matic".

Antonio Conte admitted on Wednesday that the departure of Matic was a "great loss" to Chelsea, who will also begin their Premier League title defence without £40 million signing Bakayoko due to a knee injury picked up in the final weeks of last season at Monaco. It is just how he uses that talent in the team.

"Chelsea are weaker than last season - no Diego Costa, no Matic - and I'm concerned for them".

But Lampard believes the 24-year-old's determination to force his way out of a comfortable situation in the Spanish capital is a good sign. I have been away for over 10 years now and I don't get to see my mum that often. It's a very tough league and he'll have to stand up to that.


"You would applaud that but those players aren't even at the club now". We played against a very good side.

"I think you saw that previous year", he said. He's a very select player who's a top, top striker, but when the position goes so far it's hard to put it back. Last season, Antonio Conte led them to their 5th title, and while Matic was a core player alongside N'Golo Kante, it was the Frenchman who ended up with a majority of the credit. "Old Trafford is waiting for us and I think Old Trafford has a reason to be behind us", he said.

"I think he brings aggression to United's midfield, which is something they have been lacking".

"But I understand people's fears".

"He's very similar in a way to Michael Carrick - a controlling midfielder".

Since Alex Ferguson retired after the 2013 title win United have not finished in the top three but some serious investment in new players gives manager Jose Mourinho, starting his second season at the club, the sense that things are coming together. "Hopefully by the time the window shuts it all comes together, and then the club moves forward".
