Man Utd veteran Nemanja Matic: I miss Axel!

Manchester United veteran Nemanja Matic admits he's missing the banter of teammate Axel Tuanzebe.

The two players have been self-isolating at their respective homes since mid-March like the rest of the United squad.

"Which player am I missing the most? Axel!" Matic told United's official website. "I always like to speak with him, because we always attack each other – in a good [funny] way! In a good way!

Always, the players like it when we are together in the changing room. They always expect what is going to happen next, so I miss him a lot.

"But, to be honest, I like everyone in the changing room.

"I like to share the funny jokes with Marcus Rashford, Jesse [Lingard]... but the players closer to my age like Juan [Mata], David [De Gea], of course, I understand better with them than Mason Greenwood, for example, because there is an age gap of more than 10 years."
