La Liga stars compares himself to Man United’s Nemanja Matic

Celta Vigo’s latest summer signing Okay Yokuslu has spoken to the media for the first time since his move to La Liga.

Yokuslu put pen-to-paper on his transfer from Trabzonspor to Celta last week.

According to the Turkish outlet Fotomac, Yokuslu has likened himself to Manchester United defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic, when asked to describe himself to the local press.

The Turkey international went onto say that he takes inspiration from Matic and tries to play like him too.

“When asked about my playing style I tell them I get compared to Matic a lot,” Yokuslu was quoted as saying by Fotomac.

“Much like Matic, I like to pick the ball up deep in midfield and organise the play.

“I want Celta fans to know that I will always give my all when on the field.”

Everton were among several Premier League clubs linked with a move for Yokuslu prior to his move to Spain.

The midfielder has been in impressive form for Trabzonspor this season and has recently cemented his place in the Turkey national team’s starting eleven.

Yokuslu scored two goals and provided three assists in 33 appearances for Trabzonspor this season
