Nemanja Matic has told Manchester United’s young forwards to make the most of Edinson Cavani’s presence at Old Trafford. The striker scored his ninth goal for the club in the 2-0 win against Granada at Old Trafford, securing a 4-0 aggregate victory in the Europa League quarter-final.
Nemanja Matic said: “He’s a top striker, very professional. The kids we have in the squad can learn a lot from him every day. He’s a big name, he shows every day why he’s a big name and why he scored so many goals. He’ll be very important until the end of the season.”
United’s routine win set up a Europa League semi-final against Roma and Matic is looking forward to the test against the Serie A side.
Nemanja Matic added: “A big game, big semi-final for us. We’re very happy we can play against a big club, I’m happy we can compare our qualities to them. We expect a very interesting game. It’s the time to go to the final and win the trophy. It’s going to be hard, we respect Roma, we know they have a good squad with a good coach, they’re a big club. We have to believe in our qualities and we want to play that final and bring a trophy to Old Trafford because this club deserves the best.”
