New Manchester United Signing: I Want To Emulate This Star At Old Trafford
Manchester United's latest signing, Nemanja Matic, wants to follow in the footsteps of a former Old Trafford great, and hopes he can emulate his success too.
The former Chelsea midfielder has become the fourth Serbian player to join the club, the most famous arguably being central defender Nemanja Vidic.
Matic had a lot of praise for his former national team captain, saying he will try and pick up from where Vidic left off at the club.
"Vidic, as you know, was a great player and one of the players where I look to be similar because he had a great career," the 29-year-old told Manchester United's official website.
"When I come for the first time to the Serbia national team, he was one of the captains, he was a leader of our national team so he's great.
"It's great to be at the same club like him and I will try to do my best to repeat what he does. I know that is going to be very hard but I will try to do the best because I don't want that, one day, he tells me 'What are you doing there?!' So I will try to do my best for him to be happy."
Matic made 154 appearances for Chelsea in his two stints at the club, scoring seven goals and assisting 20 further strikes.
