Mkhitaryan surprised Chelsea allowed Matic to join Manchester United

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is surprised that Chelsea allowed a player of talent like Nemanja Matic to join their direct rivals Manchester United.

The Serbian helped the Reds in a 4-0 victory over West Ham on the opening weekend of the Premier League season, 24 hours after champions Chelsea were beaten by Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Despite two goals from fellow new signing Romelu Lukaku, Matic was named Man of the Match at Old Trafford.

“Actually, I am [surprised],” said Mkhitaryan after the game.

“But I’m very happy that we’ve got him.”
