Ex-Blues midfielder Nemanja Matic was knocked out of the Champions League as United lost 1-0 on the night and 2-1 on aggregate to Athletico Madrid.
Matic left Chelsea in 2017 and joined rivals Man United. Some fans have been reacting to Matic wanting to win trophies when he moved to Manchester.
Got to applaud Nemanja Matic’s ambition though. Leaving Chelsea for Manchester United to win trophies.— Russell (@ChelseasTopBoy) March 15, 2022
1 FA Cup, 1 Europa League, 1 Super Cup, 1 Club World Cup & a European Cup later & he’s watched Chelsea win them all on the telly 😂😂😂
(He did get a medal for one of them🥈)
Just remembered Matic said he was leaving Chelsea to win trophies… 5 years later, still no update from him 😭😭😭— ⁵ (@JF5Era) March 15, 2022
@manwhaat: “Lol you don’t leave Chelsea to win trophies, you take the trophy memories around on your retirement vacation around Europe”
@LewisRaikkonen: “Chelsea really got the best Matic and sold him at the right time 2 times”
@byabashaijapoet: “Now I know why Chelsea is hated. Matic, Mata, Willian all left to win trophies but only to be frustrated.”
