Matic Trolls Chelsea Fans Claiming Manchester United Is A Bigger Club
Nemanja Matic feels Manchester United are “definitely” a bigger club than his former side Chelsea.
The midfielder spent three-and-a-half years in his second spell at Chelsea, winning the Premier League twice in that time before moving to United ahead of this season in a reported £40 million move.
Matic was named man-of-the-match in his Premier League debut as Jose Mourinho’s men impressively beat West Ham 4-0 last weekend.
He is loving life at United and risked the ire of his former club’s fans by claiming he was in no doubt his new side were bigger.
Asked if United were the biggest club he has played for, Matic told Sky Sports: “Definitely, everyone knows what Manchester United is about.
“When you say Manchester United, it is different.
“Also Chelsea is a big club, Benfica is the biggest club in Portugal. But Manchester is Manchester.
Matic revealed it was an easy decision to join a club of United’s stature, particularly given it was his former boss who Mourinho came calling.
