A Serbian football player reveals discipline problems at Manchester United.

In a recently recorded interview with U Planet, former Manchester United player Nemanja Matic revealed details about the lack of discipline at the club.

The Serbian footballer made 128 appearances for United between 2017 and 2022. He joined United from Chelsea, the club he played for for many years. He was surprised by the inconsistency in discipline at the clubs, and claimed that several United players were often late.

– At Chelsea the players behaved professionally, were punctual and never arrived late for training, but at United this happened almost every day, he said. Planet U.

Matic says that during his time at United he became chairman of a five-person “internal disciplinary committee”, to improve standards in the dressing room.

– Among the players who were always falling behind were Paul Pogba, Jadon Sancho and a couple of others. The rest of us who were always on time were angry, so we decided to form an internal disciplinary committee with me as chairman.

– I hung a paper on the wall in which I wrote down the names of people who arrived late. In one season, we collected around £75,000 in fines. We had planned to use the money to hold a concert in London, but did not do so due to the coronavirus outbreak.
