Juan Mata sends message to fans following victory against Barcelona

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has praised his teammates after they saw off Barcelona in the penultimate game of the pre-season tour of the United States.

Mata looked lively during the game and showcased a fine range of passing at the Levi’s stadium.

Goals from Wayne Rooney, Jesse Lingard and Adnan Januzaj eventually wrapped up a 3-1 victory for Louis van Gaal’s side.

Mata clearly enjoyed the clash and sent a message to fans following the match:

Mata is a fans’ favourite at Old Trafford due to his fantastic attitude off the pitch. The Spaniard’s performances on it have steadily improved since his arrival last year, particularly during a crucial six-game winning streak towards the end of last season.

United’s rumoured pursuit of Barcelona’s Pedro may reduce his game time somewhat but there is no doubt that he will welcome the challenge.
