‘Deserves it’, ‘Respect’, some Man United fans are pleased with midfielder’s contract extension

A section of the Manchester United fans have reacted positively to the news that the club have exercised the 12-month extension clause in the contract of Nemanja Matic.

The Serbian has been a regular in the centre of the park during the second half of the season and he has missed just one of the previous 10 Premier League games, which was due to a suspension.

Of course, Matic has greatly benefitted from the injuries to Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba but there are no doubts that he has earned the role after catching the eye with his positioning in front of the backline.

Earlier this month, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Matic would ‘100 percent‘ stay with United next term and the same has been revealed in a recent article written by Adam Marshall on the club’s official website.

This has brought about a positive reaction from a large number of United supporters and some of them have taken to Twitter to express their delight over the player’s contract extension until June 2021.

Twitter Reactions:

Matic has not earned the same praise as Fred over the past few months but he has gone on to effectively perform his duties from the holding midfield position.

United are said to be keen on extending Matic’s contract beyond next season and that is definitely a worthwhile option as the likes of James Garner and Dylan Levitt seek to breakthrough in the coming years.
