Matic Delighted with Fred Partnership
Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic is delighted with the progress of his midfield partnership with Fred.
Both Matic and Fred were frozen out of the team at points last season, but with injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay, the prominence of both has risen.
In recent months, they have formed an effective fulcrum in the heart of the United midfield. Matic told GQ magazine that the partnership has pleased him.
“We understand each other well. We know our positions, we have the quality to play for this club and we’re showing it consistently.”
United signed Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes in January to bolster the midfield and Matic has not been surprised by his performances.
“Bruno is another player with quality. Like me, he played for a big club in Portugal before coming to England. He’s shown that he’s immediately ready to play for United and his desire to win is clear.”
