Ranked: 101st 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. 🇷🇸️

Bravo Matke, samo rokaj! P.S. Gde da nađem tvoj sadašnji dres reprezentacije?
