Man United trigger one-year extension to Nemanja Matic contract

Manchester United have extended the contract of midfielder Nemanja Matic until 2021.

Matic, 31, had entered the final 12 months of his existing deal but the club have triggered an option in his contract to keep him at Old Trafford for another year.

The Serbia international struggled to hold down a regular place in the team at the start of the season and said he was unsure if he remain at United next season.cheap youth nfl jerseys

But injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay enabled Matic to return to the side and become a fixture in United’s 11-match unbeaten run, before the world of football was halted due to the coronavirus outbreak.4

Meanwhile, United will no longer hold training at their Carrington base in line with governmental advice over the coronavirus.

The government urged the country on Monday to avoid gatherings and crowded places.

European football has been heavily affected by the coronavirus outbreak. The Champions League and Europa League have been suspended while the Premier League is also on hold until April 3 at the earliest.

Also on Tuesday, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) announced that they have charged a man for allegedly making racist gestures during the Premier League clash between local rivals Manchester City and United at the Etihad Stadium in December.

A video that circulated on social media after the match appeared to show the supporter aiming racist abuse at United midfielder Fred, and the Brazil international later told ESPN Brasil he blamed the “backward society” for the incident.
