Man Utd veteran Matic: Derby win over Man City took team spirit to new level

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic says the derby win over Manchester City took the squad's team spirit to a new level.

Amid the coronavirus suspension, the 31-year-old cannot wait to return to competitive action, but feels Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reds finished on a high note with the 5-0 win over LASK and, notably, a 2-0 win over Manchester City in Old Trafford's last match to date.

“I felt very well during the last game against Manchester City at home," Matic told manutd.com.

“The supporters were incredible, [and] I think that we also played well.

"The atmosphere was fantastic, and I think, in that game, every player felt what United is. That game I will remember always."
