Man Utd veteran Matic: No excuses for our youngsters

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic says his young teammates must stand on their own next season.

Matic has insisted that the youth in the squad cannot be used as a pretext for an underwhelming campaign next term.

"Of course, we have a young team, but this cannot be an excuse," he said.

"I think these young players already have a few seasons behind them playing. So, from the next season, we have to fight for the title. I don't know if we're going to win [it] but I'm sure that we can fight until the end.

"That's my personal target and I think the rest of my team-mates think the same."
