Nemanja Matic hands Manchester United teammates a warning ahead of new season

Nemanja Matic hands Manchester United teammates a warning ahead of new season

13 Jun 2019, 08:30

Ahead of the new English Premier League season, Nemanja Matic has fired a warning to his Manchester United teammates that they need to focus from day one of the season.

United had a dismal end to the campaign that saw them miss out on Champions League football next season after finishing at a disappointing sixth. The Red Devils won only two of their last 12 matches towards the end of the season and did not manage to win any of their last five Premier League games which saw them concede 10 goals and lose 4-0 to Everton.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Matic urged his teammates to have maximum focus throughout the season, "We need to be focused from the first day. To prepare physically and to be ready mentally for the season which is in front of us. We must think positively. We want to win trophies, so I think everyone needs to be ready.

"The mood is always great. But last summer, because we had the World Cup, we had a shorter holiday and didn’t have as much time to rest. This time I think we will have more days off, so I think by the start of July we’ll be in a good mood. I’ve had many hard pre-seasons, especially when I started playing football in Serbia. We had some old-school coaches [in Serbia], one month without the ball, just running. I don’t think Ole will do the same."
