Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic calls on the club’s former players-turned-pundits to be more supportive when passing judgement on children.
Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has actually called for former players-turned-pundits to be more supportive about the club, especially when it comes to young players.
The likes of Gary Neville, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand are amongst the noteworthy United alumni to have actually turned to punditry, and they have actually frequently been vital of the club during a lean spell in the wake of Sir Alex Ferguson‘s retirement.
Nevertheless, Matic thinks that their words do more damage than excellent and advised them to “help the players” instead of criticise them.
“I think it’s their job if they go on television, it’s their job to say something. Sometimes they say the truth, probably, sometimes they criticise the younger players which isn’t good, in my opinion,” the Serbian international informed Omnisport.
” Specifically if you’re an ex-player of Manchester United and you criticise the players and you understand you have actually existed 10, 15, 20 years back, it’s bad.
“You have to help the players if you can. But they probably get money to work there and they have to say something.”
Matic has actually made 22 appearances for United throughout all competitions this season, with his form making him a 1 year contract extension.
