Matic calls on ex-Man Utd stars to be more supportive in media

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has called on club greats working in the media to be more supportive.

The likes of Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Roy Keane have all transitioned into punditry since bringing the curtains down on their respective careers.

"I think it's their job if they go on television, it's their job to say something. Sometimes they say the truth, probably, sometimes they criticise the younger players which isn't good, in my opinion," Serbia international Matic told Omnisport.

"Especially if you're an ex-player of Manchester United and you criticise the players and you know you've been there 10, 15, 20 years ago, it's not good.

"You have to help the players if you can. But they probably get money to work there and they have to say something."
