Manchester United players are reportedly questioning Jose Mourinho’s unwavering blind faith in Nemanja Matic.

The Portuguese tactician bought the midfielder from his former club Chelsea during his second season at Old Trafford, and since his arrival, the player has been an ever-present fixture in the Reds’ starting lineups.

Matic started 35 Premier League games for the Old Trafford outfit during his debut season in Manchester, and in the ongoing campaign, he has been a part of the starting lineup in 9 of the 12 opening games.

While the Serbian international was quite impressive in the previous term, however, he has been far from his best this time around. Therefore, him getting picked despite a series of poor performances has raised quite a few eyebrows.


REVEALED: The Manchester United Player Who Will ‘Run Through Walls’ For Mourinho

According to The Times, a part of the Manchester United squad has been left baffled with the fact that Nemanja Matic continues to start games despite dropping several below-par displays.

Mourinho’s reluctance to bench Matic hasn’t just surprised one and all, but is also being deemed as unfair treatment by several players in the dressing room.

Matic received abundant flack for his display in the Red Devils’ win over Bournemouth two weeks ago, with club faithful criticising his performance on social networking website Twitter.

Further, the midfielder was also partly responsible when United conceded the third goal against Manchester City, as he failed to mark Ilkay Gundogan whilst his side was trying to mount a comeback from 2-1 down.

Will Matic continue to enjoy preferential treatment from Jose? Or will the Special One finally make the sensible call and bench the out-of-form player? We shall find out post the international break.
