Serbia’s national team has a host of players playing in the Premier League and Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic believes Nemanja Matic isn’t just an important player for Serbia but for Chelsea as well.
“Nemanja has been at the top of the game for a long time,” Tadic told Goal. “He is important for them [Chelsea], also they have a great coach and you can see that they have a great mentality and good qualities.
“I am very happy for him because he is a good guy and player. He is very important [for us] because he is one of the best at his position and we are happy to have him. The title race is still open but I think Chelsea have the will do it.
“I think they have enough experience not to throw away eight points, along with Matic’s qualities of course! They have a good coach, Antonio Conte has tried to find the best season for them and after Arsenal they changed to 3-4-3 and that’s the biggest difference and with the players they have… they are one of the best in the league.”
