Jose Mourinho’s latest inductee into his Manchester United squad, Nemanja Matic claimed the Red Devils ‘defintely’ a bigger side to represent than his former club Chelsea.

The 29-year-old recently switched sides by completing his lucrative £40 million move to Old Trafford in the summer.

Despite its too early in the season, the summer signing is already throwing away shade of blue of his former club Chelsea by revealing the fact that his new club will always have the bragging rights whenever the comparison between the two clubs come into play.

When Matic was asked if Manchester United were the biggest club he has ever represented, he replied, “Definitely, everyone knows what Manchester United is about”.

“When you say Manchester United, it is different. Also Chelsea is a big club, Benfica are the biggest club in Portugal. But Manchester is Manchester,” Matic was quoted as saying.  

Matic was brought to Chelsea by Mourinho from benifica and he played the same role in bailing out the Croatian from the defending Premier League champions.

“He [Mourinho] was very important for me,” Matic told Sky Sports ahead of United’s game at Swansea.

“He bought me to Chelsea from Benfica and now when I decided to come to Manchester, he was a reason to come here,” he added.
