The midfielder was given a note by his coach on Sunday and may have been pleasantly surprised by what was written on it

Nemanja Matic has revealed what was written on the note passed to him by Jose Mourinho during Manchester United's win over Chelsea on Sunday.

The midfielder was handed a piece of paper by his coach, prompting many to guess what his message was, especially as United went on to beat their rivals 2-1.

But Matic has joked that the Portuguese coach had merely written a personal message for the Serbian with some good news on it, instead of a master tactical plan to help his side get the three points.

Ex-Chelsea player Matic posted an image of him holding the piece of paper on Instagram alongside a close up of what he claims was a promise of a holiday from his boss.

"You have three days off," it said.
