Steven Gerrard has admitted that he wishes Manchester United didn't sign Nemanja Matic from Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

Over the years, Steven Gerrard and Manchester United have enjoyed what one might describe as a rocky relationship.

Gerard, now a pundit on BT Sport as well as a coach in Liverpool's Academy, spoke of his shock that Premier League Champions Chelsea allowed Matic to join United this summer.

"He was one of the toughest opponents I played against". "He's very leggy, he's good in the air, he competes, he always gets a toe in, he can run and match your runs".

The ex-England captain was so impressed by Manchester City against Napoli on Tuesday night he believes they can go onto win the Champions League this season.

Having been part of the fierce rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester United, Gerrard went on to admit that the arrival of Serbia global Matic at Old Trafford caused him great concern for his former side's chances of claiming a first Premier League title, and Gerrard's ties with the club still run thick after moving into management with their youth sides.

The camera then panned to Scholes, who just couldn't resist a little smirk as he remembered that Gerrard never lifted the Premier League trophy during his 17-year career with Liverpool.

Matic made the move from London to Manchester for £40 million and has been simply vast for Jose Mourinho's side.

Matic put in another commanding display for Man United, facing his former club Benfica, in a 1-0 victory in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday evening.
