Earlier this week, here at Vital Manchester United, we covered the news that our Serbian midfielder, Nemanja Matic, was set to be offered a new deal.
Our article title: – united-midfielder-to-be-given-a-surprise-new-deal – showed our view by including the word – surprise.
Now that was based on the fact that earlier in the season Matic was conspicuous by his absence in Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s starting eleven, something that has changed recently with Matic taking his chance to re-establish himself in the side after injuries struck.
Based on the article, here at Vital Manchester United, we ran a poll that was entitled:
Are United Right To Offer Matic A New Deal?
The response was emphatic with 91% voting for the YES option with only 7% going for the NO option with a mere 2% sitting on the fence and taking the UNDECIDED option.
I doubt whether, in my time in the editorial chair, we’ve had such a one-sided poll.
But, I’m still not sure Matic is the man to take this side forward from the defensive midfielder point of view, but then again, I’m just an amateur hack and not a football manager.
