Man United midfielder Matic opens up over Chelsea exit

Manchester United star Nemanja Matic has insisted he has nothing to prove to former club Chelsea ahead of their meeting this weekend.

The Serbia international was sold by Antonio Conte for £40million in the summer after being deemed surplus to requirements.

Since his move, the 29-year-old has been credited with being part of the reason for United’s upturn in fortunes in the Premier League this season.

Sunday will provide Matic with another opportunity to show the Blues what they are missing, but he claims that is not on his mind.

“When I played there I showed my quality. We won the title twice, we also won cups. So I don’t need to prove anything to them – I need to prove it to my new club,” Matic insisted.

“I spent a good time at Chelsea, three-and-a-half years is a long time, so, of course, it means a lot to me to go back. It’s going to be something special to play again in the stadium.

“But now I’m on the other side, I’m a Manchester United player. I’m a professional and I’m going to do my best against them to get three points for my team. We know how important this game is.”
