Matic made up to go through
Nemanja Matic reacts to United reaching the Carabao Cup semi-finals...
Nemanja, you're in the semi-finals tonight you must be delighted with the result tonight but also the way you stuck to the task?
Yeah we are happy to be in the semi of course, we knew that they were going to defend well and play their best. I think we played well most of the game. First half we had complete control, we played round their box and we had chances to score. We scored the three goals in the second half. In second half they made one great counter attack and after that we scored in the next action. I'm happy we're in the semi-final. Hopefully we can make a good game in the semi-final and go to the final of course.
Was there a feeling that first goal would open it up if you could get it?
Of course, the first half I think the game will be different but they defended really well with 11 players behind the ball so it was hard and we knew it was going to be hard. But after the first goal the game was more open, more space for us to play between the lines and after that, 3-0, of course we are happy to go through.
We've seen you on the field helping on the youngsters and using your experience to good affect...
Of course, when I'm on the field I always try to do my best, I always try to help the team. When I'm on the pitch I'm happy and I will continue to do my job.
Is there a feeling that on a good day Man Utd can beat anyone with this squad?
Yeah, we can beat anyone but we also can lose against anyone as you've seen this season. We have to be more consistent in our games, but this is normal for a young team without experience. This is normal and I'm sure those young guys in our changing room they are the future of Manchester United.
