Nemanja Matic Likes Comment Saying He Should Leave Manchester United
Nemanja Matic has added to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's by liking a comment on social media suggesting he should leave Manchester United if the manager doesn't see him as a first team player.
On Saturday Matic made his first appearance for the club of the season, coming on as a second half substitute, but he couldn't help United pick up a win against Southampton, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side dropping points for the third game in-a-row.
After the match one United fan noticed that Matic had liked a comment on Instagram saying the Serb should leave Old Trafford if Solskjaer doesn't consider him a first team player.

Before Saturday's game Matic had started on the bench in all three of United's games this season, as they beat Chelsea, drew with Wolves and lost to Crystal Palace, but had failed to get on.
Once again he had to watch as Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay and Juan Mata, the latter in for Jesse Lingard, started in midfield for Solskjaer's team.
The 31-year-old came on with 22 minutes, in a double substitution with Lingard for Mata and Andreas Pereira, with the team level at 1-1 with Southampton.
Saints had a man sent off with just over 15 minutes to go but they were unable to find a way through the Saints' defence and they once again dropped two points.
Matic joined United from Chelsea in the summer of 2017, teaming up with Jose Mourinho again, after the Portuguese boss had managed him at Stamford Bridge.
He started will that season but his form quickly fell away. He played 28 games for United in the league last season but has been overtaken McTominay in the pecking order under Solskjaer.
The Red Devils have made a big effort to get rid of the unwanted players in Solskjaer's squad this summer but the lack of creativity and game changing substitutes proved those players still need to be replaced.
Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez have both left the club, the former permanently and the latter on loan, and both would have likely helped with the attempt to score a winner on Saturday.
