PICTURE: Mata sends happy message to fans after scooping second award

by Sam Peoples

Juan Mata has thanked the fans after being named Manchester United’s April Player of the Month.

This is the second time in four months where the Spaniard has picked up the award in what has been a steadily improving start to his career at Old Trafford.

His best performance in a United shirt was away to Newcastle in April and looking ahead at next season, Mata is only going to keep getting better.

“I’m happy and very grateful,” Mata told ManUtd.com.

“We had two great games in April – Newcastle away and Norwich at home – so I think that’s why I got it.

“Since my first game at Old Trafford, the fans have been amazing with me. The only thing I want is to give them as much as I can on the pitch. We look forward to bringing success back to the supporters. I think it’s what they deserve.”

Mata has been fitting in at United piece by piece as the season has gone on and his performances against Newcastle and match winning cameo appearance against Norwich are testament to that.

Next season, Mata will no doubt be a central figure for this United side.
