Nemanja Matic reveals thoughts on red card at Watford

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has accepted that he deserved to be booked against Watford on Saturday night, but feels that he was a touch unfortunate to be sent off in his team’s 2-1 win.

Matic picked up his first yellow card in the 70th minute of the clash, before a late trip on Will Hughes saw the Serbia international given his marching orders for a second booking.

The 30-year-old will now miss United’s Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers next weekend, and the midfielder will take the opportunity to “rest”.

“I think the first yellow card was a clear yellow card. The second one, I’m not sure. It was a foul but I’m not sure if it was a yellow card. It’s okay. I accept the decision of the referee and I will have one game to rest,” Matic told reporters.

United will begin their 2018-19 Champions League group-stage campaign with a clash against Swiss outfit Young Boys on Wednesday night.
