Matić: Solskjær a much better manager than one year ago

United midfielder Nemanja Matić says Ole Gunnar Solskjær is a ‘much better’ manager than one year ago.

The 31-year-old, who has been described as a future coach himself by Solskjær, was speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Sunday’s match against Everton.

Quizzed on whether his boss is growing, Matić said: “Of course, every day he is improving for sure.

“He is getting more experience and he will get better and better.”

“He is a much better manager than one year ago in my opinion because now he knows all the players, he knows exactly what he needs to do before the games, so I think for his job the experience is very important.”

The Serbian midfielder won a regular place back in the starting XI last month during an injury-plagued spell, and earned plaudits due to his impressive performances alongside Fred.

Matić will face a former manager in Carlo Ancelotti at Goodison Park on Sunday, and was highly-complimentary about the Italian.

“He’s a great, great coach, with great character,” explained the Serb.

“He’s one of the best in football history. He has won many trophies so it’s going to be nice to see him again.”

Kick-off on Sunday against the rejuvenated 11th-placed Toffees is 14:00 GMT, live on Sky Sports.
