Nemanja Matic: ‘I think this club always needs to fight for the title’

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic says his club must always be one of the clubs fighting for the championship of the Premier League. The Red Devils managed to finish in third position this season but were still 33 points behind champions Liverpool and 15 points behind city rivals Manchester City.

“Me, personally, I would like to win the Premier League with Manchester United,” he told the club’s official magazine Inside United. Matic joined United from Chelsea three years ago and the Serbian midfielder has yet to win a trophy with the Mancunians. But he is adamant that United will fight for the silverware.

“I think that our club always needs to fight for the title. We always need to try to do the best for this club, which we are doing at the moment, and I think we cannot allow any club to win the league seven or 10 games before the season finishes. So we have to fight until the end.”
