Matic gives female fan a hug after kicking ball into her face – and Man United’s faithful love him for it

Date Posted,August 1, 2017

Nemanja Matic turned what could have put a dampener on debut for Manchester United into a magic moment against Sampdoria in Dublin.

The new midfield signing from Chelsea inadvertently kicked the ball into a female fan’s face during Wednesday night’s match.

The £40 million arrival had failed to keep the ball in play and kicked the ball away in frustration.

But instead of going into the advertising hoardings it cleared the barrier and hit the supporter in Ireland.

With her friends on either side laughing hysterically, the victim had her head in her hands hands and was surely in some degree of pain.

In a bid to appease his accidental misdemeanour, Matic was quick to run over to her give her a hug, much to the delight of the other supporters around her.

Matic then resumed his place on the pitch for the remainder of the first half before Man United went to the break 1-0 up.
