Gary Neville: Conte Disappointed with Matic Sales
Manchester United soccer legend, Gary Neville believes that Antonio Conte who now handles Chelsea is not willing to sell Nemanja Matic to Old Trafford this summer.
The belief, because for the Italian tactics tactics that the player is one of the key players who helped assist its performance in helping win the Premier League title 2016-2017 and last season recorded Nemanja appear as many as 30 games and five other matches entered as a substitute. Even his contribution in midfield also brought the team to the final of the FA Cup, but unfortunately in the top party they swallow 2-1 kekakalahn over Arsenal.
However, the scintillating appearance of 28-year-old players that make it must lift the foot from Stamford Bridge, the article of the club just bring a new midfielder like Tiemoue Bakayako from Manaco. With that note then Neville felt the coach was not happy related to the policy of the Blues which actually sells players to their rivals, the Red Devils.
“When a player leaves a club, you usually do not see a coach talking so glowingly about them. Where they usually say it’s time they have to go, or that is the right step for both sides, “Gary Neville told the media.
“But Conte instead talked about him in such a way as to how extraordinary they are about the work they did last year. Matic and N’Golo Kante in front of his three defenders and I have no doubt that he did not approve of the move. He was not happy about it and finally he was uncomfortable with something like that.
“I have to say that this is a strange step, it is true, to sell to one of the main rivals sometimes at times forced, but I do not seem to see Matic forcing him to cross him, maybe he’s behind, but he seems to be in front general.
“There is rarely a transfer between the champions to the club that challenge them and that is a strange step and I do not think he likes it and I do not think he agrees with it because he says he has to strengthen it now and fill that gap.”
