Nemanja Matic has been enjoying some good form recently, which has seen him score his first two Manchester United goals over the past two weeks.

The midfielder has praised manager Jose Mourinho, who brought him from Chelsea to Old Trafford, and hailed his winning mentality.

I haven’t had many managers in my life but he is special because he wants to win, always. You can see when we lose a game, he cannot accept that. Probably that’s why he won more than 20 trophies in his life. He always wants more and more. Even if you win the league, he wants to win again next season. He is like this and the players need to be ready for that.

I like it when the manager always wants better and better, so you have to improve, always. Always do your best. I like this kind of work, this kind of relationship. I’m happy. At this high level and Manchester United and where I used to play Chelsea, the pressure is big. Everyone expects you to win every game. Obviously it is not possible, but supporters always expect. It doesn’t matter if you are tired or not, supporters want high-quality football. It is normal.
