WHY OH WHY?

Nobody can understand why Chelsea allowed Nemanja Matic to join a main rival

The midfielder signed for Manchester United in a £40m deal and bossed the game against West Ham

Nemanja Matic plays football how everyone should want to play football.

Effortlessly.


IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO SIGN UP TO PLAY FANTASY FOOTBALL

Matic was brilliant against West Ham

The midfielder made his Manchester United debut against West Ham on Sunday afternoon and, it’s fair to say, completely bossed proceedings.

Matic ran the show in the centre of the park, breaking playing up and liberating Paul Pogba into a position where he could dictate play more further up the field.

So it begs the question.

Why on Earth did Chelsea opt to sell such an assured presence to one of their main title rivals?

Matic = coolness personified

Matic left Stamford Bridge for Old Trafford in a £40m deal this summer as he reunited with former manager Jose Mourinho.

And you can bet Antonio Conte will be livid about it, particularly after Chelsea’s opening day defeat to Burnley on Saturday.
