The Serbian midfielder says it is not picnic working for Mourinho but that this is part of the reason why the Portuguese manager has been so successful.

Nemanja Matic has explained how it is not easy to work with Jose Mourinho in an interview with the English media. The Serbian says Mourinho is obssessed with working towards success. "Mourinho is a brand, the best manager I have worked with. Sometimes it's not easy to work with him because he always demands more," he says.

The 29-year-old arrived at Old Trafford in the summer to work with Mourinho after Chelsea allowed him to leave Stamford Bridge for €44.7 million. He arrived as a special request of Mourinho, who was looking for a reliable holding midfielder. The pair had worked together previously at Chelsea winning the Premier League title in both Matic and Mourinho's second stints at the club.

The Red Devil says one of the main reasons he signed with the club was because of Mourinho, "We understood each other very well during our time with Chelsea, and the fact that Mourinho was the coach of United was decisive in my choosing to join the club."

The Yugoslavia-born midfielder say part of his success is down to the fact tht he puts no limits on his players and what he expects of them, "When you play the best game of your career, he wants you to do even better in the next game".
