Matic: We need to be ready.

Matic has told his Man Utd teammates they need to be ready from the start of the new season.

Nemanja Matic has issued a rallying cry to his Manchester United teammates urging them to be more focussed and hit the ground running from the first day ahead of the new Premier League season.

The Red Devils midfielder is keen for his side to return to form and fight for silverware following the disappointment of the 2018-19 campaign.

United finished in sixth spot in the Premier League as they failed to secure a Champions League spot.

"I think we need to be focused from the first day, to prepare physically and to be ready mentally for the season which is in front of us," the 30-year-old told United's website.

"We [must] think positively. We want to win trophies, so I think everyone needs to be ready."

Matic added: "The mood is always great. But last summer, because we had the World Cup, we had a shorter holiday and didn't have as much time to rest.

"This time I think we will have more days off, so I think by the start of July we'll be in a good mood."
