Manchester United's Nemanja Matic reveals long-standing admiration for Roy Keane

Manchester United's Nemanja Matic reveals long-standing admiration for Roy Keane”

FORMER coach Ray Wilkins has labelled Chelsea's decision to sell Nemanja Matic to Manchester United as the "worst" he has ever seen.

Matic, playing for Serbia, will face the Republic of Ireland assistant manager in Dublin this evening, as the two play in a crucial top-of-the-table World Cup qualifying game.

"He's a legend in Manchester and I'll be happy to see him and have a chat".

Former Chelsea midfielder Ray Wilkins has criticised the London club's decision to sell Nemanja Matic to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

"He was a great player and one of the best in the league".

I tried to take something from lots of players to improve myself and of course Roy Keane was one of those players. Matic has won 33 worldwide caps for Serbia, scoring one goal, and is looking forward to competing in the tournament.

Serbia failed to qualify for the last World Cup as well as the last three European Championships but Matic believes the confidence within the current squad can end that poor run. "When the game starts, after 10 minutes, I can feel what is going to happen but before the game, it is not possible to know". "I am very focused to do my job for the national team against Ireland".

Already familiar with Premier League football, the 29-year-old has quickly settled in the new red jersey, which has made him an immediate success at Old Trafford.

We will try to use our opportunities to win the game and take three points but we know it will be hard in this stadium in front of their supporters but as manager says a draw is not a bad result.

"Tomorrow is the most important game for us in this qualification - maybe in Serbia's football history", Matic said.

"I just couldn't see that piece of business at all".

"If I win the Premier League with Manchester, that would be something great in my life".

"I saw they have 25 to 30 per cent possession of the ball but they got one point in Georgia so that's most important", he continued as somewhere, in the distance, the sound of a bell ringing could nearly certainly be heard again.

Manchester United are preparing to make their return to Europe's elite club competition after having won the Europa League last season under Jose Mourinho to directly book their place in the group stage.

United have started the 2017/18 season with three wins in three matches.
