Nemanja Matic & his son’s birthday cake
This weekend Nemanja Matic shared a photo from his son’s birthday on social media.
Matic joined Man United last summer from Chelsea.
Many are still wondering why Chelsea allowed the defensive midfielder to move to Old Trafford.
Man United spent £40 million bring Matic to the Theatre of Dreams. Matic had been at Chelsea since 2014.
Indeed, Matic made over 150 appearances in his second Chelsea spell at the club.
It’s clear that Matic’s son, Filip, is now a Man United fan.
That was made clear as Filip turned 7. He celebrated his birthday with a brilliant cake in the shape of Man United’s Old Trafford stadium.
It was also worth noting the decorative shorts on the cake which read ‘Filip 31’.
31 is the number Nemanja Matic wears in Manchester.
For the record, Matic’s son trains with the Man United academy.
Sevilla vs Man United
It was a good weekend for the Red Devils in the FA Cup.
Having previously lost away to Huddersfield in the Premier League, Jose Mourinho avoided another slip up in the cup.
Goals in both halves from Belgian centre-forward Romelu Lukaku advanced United into the quarterfinals.
United continue with cup competitions this week as they head to Spain to resume their Champions League campaign.
Mourinho’s charges have been drawn against Sevilla in the last-16 of the competition.
Sevilla have already faced Premier League opposition this season, as they held Liverpool to two draws in the group phase.
Sevilla warmed up for the Man United game with a 2-1 away win at Las Palmas over the weekend. In fact Sevila will come into the United game after three wins on the spin.
