Chelsea defender Ivanovic happy for ex-teammate Matic over Benfica success

Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic is happy for former teammate Nemanja Matic over his success at Benfica.

Matic has been linked with a return to Chelsea this summer.

'When he was at Chelsea you saw he has the qualities to be a top player, but he needed practice, he needed to play and he decided the best option for him was to move to Portugal and to move to one of the biggest clubs there," said Ivanovic.
