Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has revealed that he fined himself after arriving late to a team meeting, but put the blame on teammate Paul Pogba.

Matic, 32, joined United from Premier League rivals Chelsea in 2017 and is in charge of handling club fines around the training ground alongside captain Harry Maguire.

However, Matic said that he was recently forced to pay up himself but joked that he would also charge Pogba for the incident.

"I have to say, just before the Newcastle game, I fined myself," he told the club's website. "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 [where the meeting was taking place] I was talking to Paul [Pogba], so I will ask him to pay 50% of my fine. I don't know if he will accept!"

Matic also said that he fined Maguire after the defender was caught breaking the rule of handling his phone during a gym session.
