Concise News reports that the Serb joined Twitter in June 2018 and has more than 50,000 followers. But he has never tweeted.
After the 31 year old former Chelsea man for the first time skippered Manchester United in an official match, he took to Twitter to express his pride.
He wrote: “Hi Twitter I’m here!
First time as a captain of @ManUtd in a official match #EuropaLeague and my #firsttweet. Huge honour and victory vs Astana. Let’s continue this momentum for following matches.
P.S. Hope to keep you updated as much as possible.”

He really wasn’t far too slow and too many sideways and backward passes but let’s just hope we use him in the cup games this season and give him a good send off
