Man Utd veteran Matic: I worked hard and won over Ole - simple

Manchester United veteran Nemanja Matic is delighted with the way he's won over manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After initial tension between the pair, Matic has become a first-choice for Solskjaer, who declared just last week the Serb was in career best form.

Matic said, "I've been playing football for a long time and it's a perfectly normal situation. Sometimes you don't play and the coach doesn't see you as the first choice.

"You have to work hard and wait for your chance. That's exactly what I did.

"Now the situation is different and the coaches trust me more."
