Ray Wilkins has declared Chelsea’s decision to sell Nemanja Matic to Manchester United as the ‘worst he has ever seen’.
Wilkins was flabbergasted by the Blues agreeing to sell the Serb midfielder to a title rival for £40m, just after he had helped them win their second title in three seasons.
Matic has been excellent as Manchester United have won their first three games.
“It’s the worst I’ve ever seen, if I can say,” Wilkins said on Sky Sports. “I cannot see that for the life of me.
“You’ve got a guy here who was so paramount to Chelsea along with [N’Golo] Kante in the middle of the pitch, winning the championship with Chelsea the year before and all of a sudden you’ve sold him to one of or the biggest rival we have.
“I say we because I am a Chelsea supporter so I’m speaking from the heart when I speak.’
“I just could not see that for the life of me, why would we let Nemanja go there?
“He’s been outstanding for us and you’ve seen in the short period that he’s been there how he’s allowed Pogba to basically do what he wants.
“I just couldn’t see that piece of business at all.”
Drinkwater is not Matic's replacement it's Bakayoko and even if he was, he's way better than Matic. Yes Matic is THAT bad.
