Nemanja Matic menyelar tindakan mengejek pertahanan tengah England dan Manchester United, Harry Maguire, sambil menyifatkannya sebagai orang yang tidak mempunyai kehidupan sendiri.
Maguire, yang kehilangan tempat di bahagian pertahanan sejak di bawah kendalian Erik ten Hag musim ini, tetap disenaraikan England apabila beraksi dalam kekalahan 0-1 kepada Itali Sabtu lalu.
'Tindakan mereka terhadapnya merupakan satu malapetaka,' kata pemain tengah Roma itu kepada The Times.
"Segalanya perlu ada had dan sesetengahnya pula mengejeknya di media sosial, mereka tidak mempunyai kehidupan mereka sendiri, jadi mereka hanya perlu menulis perkara buruk tentang orang lain."
England akan menutup kempen Liga Negara-Negara Eropah (UNL) bertemu Jerman di Stadium Wembley, awal pagi esok, dan sebarang keputusan tidak akan mempengaruhi kedudukan mereka di tangga tercorot Kumpulan C.
