Ranked: 113th in Premier League
Nemanja Matić is a Serbian professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for English club Manchester United and the Serbian national team. Starting his career as an attacking midfielder, Matić shifted to a defensive midfielder during his spell at Benfica. He is known for his consistent performances on the pitch and his combative style of play.

Matić began his senior career at Kolubara, before joining Slovak side Košice in 2007. He moved to English club Chelsea for £1.5 million in 2009. Used sparingly during his first spell at Stamford Bridge, he spent the 2010–11 season on loan at Dutch club Vitesse, and in January 2011, he moved to Benfica in a swap deal involving David Luiz. He won the Primeira Liga Player of the Year award for his performances in the 2012–13 season. Matić returned to Chelsea in January 2014, for £21 million. He was named in the PFA Team of the Year for the 2014–15 season. In July 2017, he was reunited with former Chelsea manager José Mourinho after signing for Manchester United.

Matić represented Serbia at under-21 level. He made his senior international debut in 2008 and has since earned over 30 caps. Description provided by Wikipedia

Invoking that 1999 Champions League final spirit 😉 What a comeback! #UCL

Flight to Turin with my friend @youngy_18 #MUFC

I recognise fully why people wear poppies, I totally respect everyone’s right to do so and I have total sympathy for anyone who has lost loved ones due to conflict. However, for me it is only a reminder of an attack that I felt personally as a young, frightened 12-year old boy living in Vrelo, as my country was devastated by the bombing of Serbia in 1999. Whilst I have done so previously, on reflection I now don't feel it is right for me to wear the poppy on my shirt. I do not want to undermine the poppy as a symbol of pride within Britain or offend anyone, however, we are all a product of our own upbringing and this is a personal choice for the reasons outlined. I hope everyone understands my reasons now that I have explained them and I can concentrate on helping the team in the games that lie ahead.

After a slow start we managed to grab a late win! What a comeback 🙌👹 Now looking forward to our trip to Turin 🔜 #UCL #MUFC

Bravo!!! Nemanja Matić il calciatore serbo del Manchester United, sabato non ha voluto indossare la coccarda commemorativa a forma di papavero per celebrare il Remembrance Day, la giornata in ricordo dei caduti durante la Grande Guerra. "Per me è soltanto il ricordo di un attacco subìto quando ero un dodicenne spaventato, che viveva a Vrelo mentre la mia terra veniva devastata dai bombardamenti della NATO del 1999". "Avete bombardato il mio Paese, non c'è modo che io la porti. Se necessario, sono pronto a lasciare immediatamente il club e l'Inghilterra", ha dichiarato. La Serbia non dimentica. 🇷🇸️

Ljudinooo 💪

Welcome to the Theatre of Dream #Nemanija Matic! I hope this season more success at your new popular club overall the World come on you Red's!

I understand why you do not want to wear a poppy but as a serb this is what i said to my daughter.....I sit and watch the minutes tick by, As Grandaddy rides messages to the front line, And daddy he sits on a mountain top bare , Holding the line so you could be there. So spare a minute my darling when 11 o'clock chimes, Spare a minute my darling for freedom is thine, And think of those bones, cold lonely the ground, Blow a kiss my darling for Auld Lang Sine. x

MATIC HERE YOUR FAN COME FROM RWANDA PLUS UNITED .are you able to win 2018 2019 premier

Good luck Nemanja Veľa štastia málo zranenì veľa úspechov!!

Keep up the great work and display, General! You're a real boss in the middle of the park and it's your time to shine at the best club in the world... You were the missing piece to the puzzle... Proof that the likes of Herrera ain't close to your level... Hope he and the rest learn from you and your game...

지원전 ㅊㅋㅊㅋ

Veliki igrač a iznad svega čovjek velikog srca!❤️ Pomagati drugima u nevolji samo takvi mogu! Veliki pozdrav iz Zagreba!❤️
