Manchester United: Fans laud ‘magic’ Nemanja Matic for Wolves performance

After Manchester United edged past Wolves 1-0 in their FA Cup third-round replay at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening, supporters have been praising unlikely hero Nemanja Matic for his contribution to proceedings – even going as far to say he should have been deemed Man of the Match. 

Matic, who has been linked with a move away from the Premier League to AC Milan recently (La Gazzetta via Sky Italia), put in a solid display to help his current side edge into the FA Cup fourth round. The Serbian, according to WhoScored.com, had 98 touches of the ball in midfield whilst completing 89% of his passes and winning two aerial duels despite a campaign during which he has rarely been involved.

In response to a fairly impressive outing, some Red Devils supporters have been singing the 31-year-old’s praises on social media after a performance that was deemed ‘magic’. Spanish midfielder Juan Mata gave the Red Devils victory courtesy of a superb finish just past the hour mark, highlighting a good afternoon for United despite the fact star forward Marcus Rashford was subbed off with an injury.

Even though there were many talking points, these supporters, in particular, have hailed Matic – find all of their best comments down below.
