Nemanja Matic Hilariously Reacts To Rumours That Jose Mourinho Wants To Sign Him For Tottenham
Nemanja Matic has brilliantly responded to an Instagram post poking fun at a potential reunion with newly-appointed Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho.
The Manchester United defensive midfielder, 31, has shared a close relationship with the 'Special One' during his time at Chelsea and United.
Mourinho, 56, initially brought Matic back to the Blues after snapping him up from Benfica in 2014.
And the former Chelsea boss would splash out on the Serbia international again when he brought him to Old Trafford in 2017.
Now, BenchWarmers posted on Instagram photos of the 'Pablo Escobar waiting' meme and captioned it: "#Matic waiting for #January so Jose #Mourinho can sign him."
The ex-Chelsea star spotted the post and responded with a pair of clapping and laughing emojis.
While plenty of fans have seen the funny side of Matic responding to the post, one fan slammed him on Twitter after tweeting: "Matic has no shame."
But fans have quickly jumped to the United player's defence while other Red Devils supporters would welcome him leaving the club.
