Nemanja Matic apologizes to Man United fans for bad race: ‘Everyone is sad’

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic said everyone at the club was “sad” after Saturday’s 4-2 Premier League loss to Leicester City.

The result took United’s winless streak to three games and left them five points behind leaders Chelsea before a tough fixture list, starting with Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Italian side Atalanta at Old Trafford.

United will then host Liverpool and face Tottenham ahead of the second leg with Atalanta and the Manchester derby against Champions City, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under increasing pressure.

“Everyone is sad, everyone has their heads down right now” Matic told the club’s official website on Sunday.

“It’s time to stick together, analyze this game as quickly as possible, then think about the next one, which is three or four days away against a very good team, Atalanta.

“It’s going to be tough too. We’re very disappointed, but I think in the future we will show that we are much better than that.

“Every next game is the most important, every next game is a new challenge, an opportunity to show your qualities. We are going to take our responsibilities. We are going to step up and see what we can do. I am sure we can do a lot of things.”

Matic also apologized to United fans for the team’s chaotic performance against Leicester.

“We are sorry for them,” he added. “They support us, especially away from home and they are the best. They deserve well, much better than that.”
