Manchester United: Red Devils fans react to Nemanja Matic nutmegging Andreas Pereira in training

Manchester United: Red Devils fans react to Nemanja Matic nutmegging Andreas Pereira in training - Manchester United

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic nutmegged his teammate Andreas Pereira during first-team training and as expected loads of fans have been reacting to the clip online.

Walking back to the changing rooms at Carrington, the Serbian dribbled a few metres, before cheekily poking the ball between the unsuspecting Pereira’s legs.

Since moving to Old Trafford from Premier League rivals Chelsea for £40.23m, the 31-year-old has featured in over 100 matches for the Red Devils, scoring 4 goals and providing 5 assists in all competitions. Matic won the Premier League three times with the Blues and picked up the Liga NOS trophy with former side Benfica (Transfermarkt).

Pereira has played in 72 games and registered 4 goals and 5 assists for United after sealing a permanent move following a successful loan spell from Spanish club Valencia (Transfermarkt).

The Brazilian has copped a lot of criticism from supporters as he has largely underperformed this season despite being given plenty of opportunities by club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Pereira has scored just once in 23 Premier League games this campaign and reports are suggesting the attacking midfielder will be surplus to requirements in the summer (Transfermarkt).

Several United fans praised Matic’s skills while others slammed Pereira’s lack of awareness. One supporter noted “Matic has more skills than the fraud Brazilian.”
