This will be my last season at Old Trafford – Manchester United Midfielder
Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has announced that he will leave the club at the end of the ongoing season. The 33-year-old, who joined Old Trafford in 2017 from Chelsea, shared his plans on Instagram.
His full statement read:
“After a great deal of thought, I have decided that this season will be my last with Manchester United. I have informed the board, the manager and the players of my decision.
It has been a huge honour and a privilege to play for this great club. A big thank you to the fans for their unwavering support.
I will now give everything until the end of the season to help my teammates finish as strongly as possible.”
Matic has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford, clocking just 994 minutes of playing time in the Premier League this term. The Serbian has another year left on his contract, but has now decided to call it time early on his Manchester United stint.
During his five-year-long association with the Red Devils, Matic failed to lift silverware. However, he was part of the United sides that finished as runners-up in the 2017-18 FA Cup and 2020-21 Europa League.
