Nemanja Matic tells fans what Manchester United don't want to do after Leicester City defeat

Nemanja Matic has told Manchester United fans that they ‘don’t want to give up’ after their recent defeat to Leicester City, insisting that they are still in the title race.

Man United were humbled at Leicester on Saturday afternoon after losing 4-2.

Mason Greenwood scored a stunner early in the first half but Youri Tielemans got the equaliser for the Foxes.

The home side would go on to score three late goals to turn Marcus Rashford’s 2-2 equaliser to a consolation goal.

Several suggestions have been made over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future and Manchester United’s chances of challenging for the Premier League title.

United are five points behind first-placed Chelsea and four points off 3rd place Liverpool but Nemanja Matic still believes the Reds are still in the race.

And the Serbian would not only apologise to the Manchester United fan but would also promise that the Red Devils would do their best to make the fans happy again.

Nemanja Matić told MUTV: “We are sorry for them [the supporters]. They support us, especially away [and] they are top.

“They deserve much, much better than this.

Nemanja Matic says Manchester United will not give up on challenging for the Premier League title

“We will do our best to make them [the fans] happy in the future. But we have 14 points – we are still in the title race.

“We don’t want to give up until the end. “Everyone is sad, everyone is with their head down at the moment.

“But when you play for Manchester United, if you don’t win the game of course you are disappointed, but we have to stick together.”

Manchester United will look to bounce back to winning ways on Wednesday when they host Atalanta at Old Trafford in what is described as a crucial Champions League group stage.

In four days time, United will host Liverpool at Old Trafford in the Premier League, knowing that a defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s side would leave them seven points behind the Merseyside Reds.
