Manchester United fans have been busy on Twitter discussing Nemanja Matic’s comments following the embarrassing 4-0 loss to Everton, and the majority aren’t falling for what he had to say.
The Serbian international said: “I, the most experienced of all of us, did not play well today. We can’t blame the young players, I was the biggest problem for the team today.”
Who would win out of Man Utd’s treble winners and Man City today? Fans discuss in the video below…
Whilst his honesty is admirable, the United fans have heard enough from their players in recent weeks and seen little change as a result to be interested in handing out any sympathy.
The Old Trafford faithful aren’t interested in words anymore. They are demanding that their players do their talking out on the pitch, something that not one of them did against Everton during Sunday’s humiliation.
Matic, by his own admission, was amongst the worst performers, constantly switching off and allowing Gylfi Sigurdsson to roam free and do whatever he wanted in the No.10 role – it is no surprise that the Icelandic international scored a goal and got an assist.
Whilst no other player has had the courage to take responsibility for their abhorrent showing, the United fans on Twitter haven’t been accepting of Matic’s honesty, not one bit…
Nothing but words tbh…

Rather he did it on the pitch to be honest.

Easy to take responsibility harder to actually do something about it.

Sympathy is what killed this team. Kick him out. Apology means nothing

Core of the problem. Saunters around like he’s playing a friendly every week…

Not buying it. Has been poor most of the season and to come out now with this? No, just no, go!

Wednesday he’ll be jogging around with no urgency giving the ball away like every other week. Disgrace for a senior player along with Young, Smalling and Jones!!

Why? We don’t want players to claim responsibility of a shabby performance…. we want players to take ownership on the pitch and boss the game…. not get dominated by teams!
