“Wholly incomprehensible behaviour” – Ex-Man United player showing major hypocrisy over Paul Pogba comments



| Last Updated:


Former Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has been criticised publicly by his current club for failing to turn up to training.

The news of Matic’s disciplinary issues comes just weeks after he called out Jadon Sancho and Paul Pogba for displaying the same behaviours at Manchester United.

Speaking late last year, Matic remarked that players would turn up late to training at United “almost every day.”

Matic would go on to highlight Jadon Sancho and Paul Pogba as two players who would, “Always be late.”

Despite Matic’s proclamations that these disciplinary issues were so severe that he was forced to serve as the president of an internal disciplinary committee within the squad, the 35-year-old has now gone on to display similar behaviours at current club Stade Rennais.

Matic, who signed for the club in August of last year, is reportedly keen on an early exit from the French club, taking matters into his own hands in a bid to secure a move away.

The midfielder, who was part of the United team that finished runners-up in the 17/18 FA Cup final, has reportedly left the city of Rennes, heading with his family to London.

In doing this, Matic failed to turn up for the Stade Rennais’ latest training sessions, something that the club have deemed as, “Wholly incomprehensible” behaviour. The club’s statement also highlighted that this behaviour was coming from an ‘experienced player.’

The club’s statements rounded off with stating that they are, “Now waiting to hear the player’s explanations and are determined to take the necessary measures to protect their interests.”

Matic was praised by many for shedding light on the behaviours that took place within Manchester United’s dressing room. Despite that, the senior players’ behaviours have mirrored those he criticised so recently after making those initial comments.
