Conte regrets Matic sale to Manchester United

14 Août, 2017, 04:34 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

The Premier League champions chose to sell Matic to their direct title rivals Manchester United in a £40m deal last week.

Yet Matic, whose parried shot created the opportunity for Lukaku to find the net, has no worries about his new colleague, citing the confidence boost that came with the goal.

He said: "I was not thinking of signing Matic because I never go for players who I think are an impossible mission to sign".

Matic was one of Manchester United's best players in an otherwise disappointing 2-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup.

"I think he's one of these players where there are no question marks in front". He doesn't need time to adapt. He is a fantastic signing for us because I can trust him to perform at a high level. He's not a young guy coming from another country.

"He's a player of, I think, now 29 last week - 29 years old, with five years or so in the Premier League, lots of experience". The importance for me about this player, who is a really good player, a top player, very important for our team, but sometimes you must accept this insane transfer market.

"It wasn't a fantastic year for United or Pogba, but it was successful in the end and that is all that matters", adds Lampard, as he passed judgement on the midfielder United paid £89m to sign from Juventus last summer.

Having patrolled the middle of the park so effectively for the Blues as they clinched the Premier League title in 2016/17, Matic was expected was to provide similar service towards their title defence this season.

He confessed to reporters that he is relishing the pressure to improve in the upcoming Premier League campaign, which kicks off against West Ham on Sunday.

"I don't put any extra pressure on myself because I always give everything, then normally the results are a good effect of that work. I am on fire".
