Smalling: Matic 'can Do Everything'
Chris Smalling has praised the quality that Nemanja Matic has brought to the Manchester United team, declaring the midfielder "can do everything".
The 29-year-old has been one of our most consistent performers this season following his summer switch from Chelsea.
An experienced campaigner in the Premier League and Champions League, Matic has been praised for his ability to protect the backline and marshal the midfield.
Smalling says the Serbia international is a dream to play with: "He can do everything.
You want to give him the ball because he’s able to find the attacking players very quickly,but he’s also able to break things up and we couldn’t ask for anyone better in the middle," Chris recently told United Review .
"The fact he’s got good experience of the Premier League and Champions League is great for us and we were always confident it wouldn’t take him too long to settle in.
"But I think he’s definitely surpassed that because he’s been one of our main players and has been fit for every game which has been brilliant."
