Juan Mata has sent a message of support for his Manchester United team-mates tonight ahead of the game against Olympiacos tonight.
The Spaniard won’t be able to take part in the game because he is cup tied but he’ll be at Old Trafford cheering them on (and barking at the referee for any time wasting by Olympiacos, of course).
I'm cup tied so won't be able to play tonight… But i will be in Old Trafford supporting my teammates! We can do it! @ManUtd

If United’s players can’t be motivated by David Moyes or themselves, then for the love of god – do it for Juan. How can you let him down?
In all seriousness, United need to pull off a European miracle tonight based on our current form but the saving grace is that Old Trafford has seen plenty of memorable occasions where the odds were stacked against us but we came through.
It’s more than a tragedy to think that tonight could be the last time United play a Champions League game for 18 months but we’re not down and out (yet).
Will tonight be a night to remember for the right or wrong reasons?
