PICTURE: Juan Mata wins his first award as a Manchester United player

by Sam Peoples

Juan Mata has been named Manchester United’s Player of the Month for February in his first full month as a player at Old Trafford.

The Spaniard got two assists in his first two appearances for Manchester United but it will be a bitter sweet award for Mata given that United only won one out of four games in February.

Despite that, it is the first award for Mata as a Manchester United player and is hopefully the first of many.

When Mata joined in January, he knew that he was walking into a side that was in transition and struggling for form but he wouldn’t have expected our season to completely unravel by the start of March.¬†Despite that, Mata has continued to say all right things and already sounds like he has been a United player for years.

In the last Premier League game week, Mata linked up with Rooney, Van Persie and Januzaj for the first time to provide some of our best football in a few months – hopefully the same will happen again away at West Brom this weekend.
