Juan Mata awarded March Player of the Month trophy

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United fans have awarded Juan Mata as their Player of the Month for March.

The Spaniard was in fantastic form and played a crucial role in both of Man United’s important wins over Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

It was his performance at Anfield which made him favourite to be chosen as Player of the Month because it’s not very often that a United player scores twice against Liverpool, let alone at Anfield, let alone with a wonderful overhead kick.

Mata has had his critics this season, us included, but he richly deserved this award after his form in March.

When Wayne Rooney was suspended earlier this season, Mata had an opportunity to make a statement but his performances underwhelmed, much to the disappointment of fans who expected him to step in and step up.

Mata didn’t make the same mistake twice and has really come to the fore in recent weeks when United needed some players to take control and with crucial games coming up, the Spaniard is likely to be one of the first names on the team sheet.
