Nemanja Matic completed a move from Chelsea to Manchester United earlier this month after three successful seasons at Stamford Bridge.
The Serbian has now implied that Manchester United are a bigger club than Chelsea.
Matic risked the wrath of Chelsea supporters with his response when asked if United were the biggest club he has played for.
He responded: “Definitely, everyone knows what Manchester United is about.
‘”When you say Manchester United, it is different. Also Chelsea is a big club, Benfica are the biggest club in Portugal. But Manchester is Manchester.
“When I came here for the first day, I could feel that the people at the club help you every day if you need something and supporters are very important for this club.
“After every training session, they are waiting for us outside the training ground to take pictures, to give a signature so I think the club is one of the biggest in the world.
“Maybe you have two or three clubs similar to United, but Manchester is one of the biggest clubs in the world for sure.”
