It cannot be said that this is a particularly successful season for Manchester United, but the impression is that it is better than the previous ones. Although they were eliminated from the Champions League and the English Cup, and although they practically lost the championship race with city rival City, the Red Devils have made a step forward compared to previous seasons.
Progress is evident ... They are second in the Premier League, they did well in the Europa League, and they are also in the game for the FA Cup trophy. The coach is the same as last year, the team is practically the same, but the progress is big.
What has changed? Maybe discipline ... Captain Harry Maguire and one of the most experienced Nemanja Matić revealed for the club's website what the rules are in the locker room of Manchester United.
It is the Serbian midfielder who is in charge of controlling the discipline in the team and has the role of a treasurer who collects money from fines due to minor disciplinary offenses by his teammates.
According to Maguire, Matic is fair and there is no relenting "I was punished only once, which could be discussed. Still, I let Nemanja do it. I put the money in the common cash register. I didn't bring the phone to the gym, but after the exercises, I went to put on my football boots, and then I picked up the phone and accidentally brought it into the gym."
"I didn't turn on it at all because I went for a massage, but obviously it would have been better if I hadn't taken it at all. "Nemanja is strict about that," says Harry Maguire For Matic, there is no doubt that the captain deserved to pay.
"It is true, he was also punished. He brought the phone to the gym. I told him, "Harry, I'm sorry, but ..." The problem is that we determine the amount of the fine." "Discipline is very important in our team and that is why we have adopted some basic rules.
We must not be late for training and meetings, there is no telephone in the gym ... The boys found it difficult to accept that at the beginning, so we collected nice money ", says the former Serbian national team member.
It seems that Solskjaer, in addition to the game, is also focused on the discipline of his team. The coach is the same as last year, the team is practically the same, but the progress is big. What has changed? Maybe discipline ...
