Nemanja Matic had shown his support for Mourinho after the manager had been the authority of Manchester United last week. Matic, the Serbian midfielder had been signed by Mourinho around two seasons ago from Chelsea. He has stated that Mourinho is not the one to be blamed for the poor results of Manchester United.
Manchester United had managed to win their first match after Mourinho left at Cardiff by 5-1. This was the first time that the club scored a goal after Sir Alex Ferguson left the club. This was 5 years ago. Irrespective of the big win, Matic didn’t ever confirm that the squad had felt liberated from the rule of Mourinho.
When he had been asked if he and his teammates had been responsible for the dismissal of Mourinho from the club, he stated that it is definitely so. He had also said this after the game of Liverpool. He said that the team has to take the responsibility as a player to play the best and do their best in order to win the game. According to him, he doesn’t know what had changed in Cardiff. This is a question that nobody will be able to answer but they are all sure that this is how they will have to continue.
He says that this is football and all these happen. According to him that it is not only the manager’s fault that the results weren’t good. However, this is football and they will have to carry on.
