Matic voiced his frustration about Serbia's performances and said the lack of progress with the team is making him consider quitting international play, reports Sky Sports.

Serbia did not qualify for Euro 2016 and finished fourth in their group. This is the third major tournament the team has missed. Matic said he spoke to coach Radovan Curcic to say that there is no point of him continuing to play if something doesn't change.

September 12, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic led Chelsea with three shots and scored their lone goal in a 3-1 loss to Everton on Saturday.

It was a fantastic strike with his left foot about 25-yards out and it was the only bright spot in a rough performance for the struggling Blues. This was his first significant production for Chelsea on the season and they may decide to move him further up the pitch to get the offense going. He and Chelsea take on Arsenal in their next match next Saturday.

Matic's three-match ban for violent conduct stemming from last weekend's match against Burnley has been reduced to two games, the FA announced Tuesday.

Matic will miss this weekend's Capital One Cup final against Tottenham, as well as a Premier League match against West Ham on March 4, but he will be eligible to return March 15 against Southampton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic was sent off with a straight red card during Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Burnley on Saturday.

Ashley Barnes hit Matic with a dangerous tackle that could have seriously damaged his leg, and the latter immediately rose from the ground and shoved Barnes, leading to the ejection. He'll miss the Capital One Cup final against Tottenham, as well as two additional Premier League matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic picked up his fifth yellow card of the season during Chelsea's 3-0 win over Tottenham on Wednesday, and he will be suspended for Saturday's match against Newcastle at St. James' Park.

Matic has been an absolute rock in the defensive midfield for Chelsea this season, but his absence will create an opening for Ramires to get his first start since Nov. 8.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic tied a season-high with three shots, while recording 107 touches and one key pass in his fourth clean sheet of the season in Saturday's 2-0 win over West Brom.

While his fantasy upside is fairly limited in most formats, Matic is the rock in the back-end of the Chelsea midfield.

November 8, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic picked up his second assist of the season Saturday against Liverpool.

Despite playing as a defensive midfielder, Matic has been very involved of late, scoring a goal against Maribor in the Champions League on Wednesday before picking up an assist Saturday. However, both plays were a bit fluky, and he isn't likely to have a breakout fantasy season in most leagues.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Matic had three successful clearances but failed to take a shot for the third straight Premier League match during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday.

Matic scored the lone-goal in Chelsea's 1-0 win over Sporting CP in the Champions League on Tuesday, though he is definitely more of a defensive player, which means a majority of his fantasy value will come from clean sheets, something that isn't often handsomely rewarded for midfielders in most fantasy formats.
