Man Utd midfielder talks about the rules and regulations at the club.

Manchester United

had a great start to the season and were leading in the Premier League for a few weeks, but they fell off in the form and after a few draws, they slipped to second and longtime rivals,

Manchester City

replaced them at the top of the table.

The Red devils Serbian star,

Nemanja Matic

has talked about the rules and regulations the players have to adhere to at the club.

In an interview with the club’s

official website

, he said:

“I have to say, just before the Newcastle game, I fined myself.

“I was late for a meeting by two seconds, and the rules are the same for everyone. I had to fine myself, because they catch me!

“I was late to the meeting. In front of the room I was talking to Paul, so I will ask him to pay 50 per cent of my fine. I don't know if he will accept!”

The Serbian claims Man Utd captain,

Harry Maguire

was also fined for not complying with the rules.

“He was fined, yeah.”

Matic continued.

“He brought his phone to the gym. The problem was me and him, we decide what the fines are! A few days later, he brought the phone to the gym, so I said, 'Harry, I'm sorry…'.

“It's very important, discipline, in our team, so that's why we made some basic rules.

“Not to be late for training, not to be late for meetings, no phones in the gym. The guys struggled to adapt for a few months, so we had a lot of money in our account, but it's going to be better!”
