“[He’s] very professional, with a lot of quality in the legs,” he added.
“His mentality is what Manchester United needs to have, so I think that with any coach, in any club he will fit very well.
“I’m happy for him and United that they have a player like that in the team. He just needs to continue how he’s been working until now and I’m sure he will be one of the Manchester United legends one day.”
At 31, Matic – who recently had a one-year extension option on his contract extended – is United’s second-oldest current outfield player, after Juan Mata.
