Jose Mourinho has revealed that Nemanja Matic will miss the start of the Premier League season.
Nemanja Matic has played no part in Manchester United’s International Champions Cup campaign in the United States since returning from World Cup duty.
Speaking to reporters after Man United’s 4-1 defeat by Liverpool in Michigan on Saturday, Mourinho confirmed that Matic will be recovering from surgery.
“Matic came from the World Cup with an injury and the time he had to rest on holiday was not enough to resolve the problem,” the Portuguese is quoted by BBC Sport as saying.
“He went to Philadelphia for a top specialist and he didn’t leave the clinic. He immediately had surgery.”
