Manchester United fans were delighted with Nemanja Matic’s debut against Sampdoria in the last game of the pre-season tour.

He completed his move to Old Trafford on Monday and has since been training with the squad, but looked like he had been at Man United for years with a very comfortable performance in the middle of the park.

Matic was absolutely sensational against Sampdoria, he was always in the right place, intercepting all of the balls that came his way and controlled the game, making the job of his defenders much easier.

Here’s what supporters on social media had to say about his performance.

Many will say it’s only Sampdoria, however, Matic has truly showcased his ability to command the game, giving Paul Pogba the opportunity to become more creative in his role without having to worry about defending so much.

It’s clear why Mourinho prioritised the signing of a defensive midfielder and Matic has proven he has what it takes to become an important player at United this season.

Mourinho has signed Matic twice in his career and it’s clear that he trusts him to do his role and now United fans understand why.
