Nemanja Matic has spoken on his time at Manchester United and explained how two particular players were ‘always’ late for training.
“At Chelsea, players acted professionally, they were punctual and were never late for training but at United it happened almost every day,” Matic said in an interview with YuPlanet, as translated by Metro.
“Among the players who would always be late were Paul Pogba and Jadon Sancho and couple of other players.
“The rest of us who were always on time were angry so we decided to form a kind of an internal disciplinary committee with me serving as its president.
“I put a sheet of paper up on the wall where I documented the names of individuals arriving late. During one particular season we collected around £75,000 in fines.
“We had planned to use the money to throw a party in London, but we didn’t due to the Covid outbreak.”
Sancho, now, has been isolated from the first-team squad at Old Trafford, with Erik ten Hah’s reasoning being partly due to his application in training and being late.
Pogba has moved away from the club and is at Juventus, but the midfielder was provisionally suspended after testing positive for a banned substance in September this year.
