Juan Mata, speaking through his weekly blog JuanMata8.com, has spoken about Manchester United’s fantastic week.
Manchester United, with the help of Juan Mata, won both of their games last week, beating Ipswich Town in the League Cup, and Sunderland in the Premier League.
Mata has described the wins and the team going to the top of the Premier League:
“These are happy days. That’s the feeling I’ve had during the entire week, since things have gone pretty well lately.”
“It’s only the start of the season, but I believe that we deserve to enjoy such a good moment like this, and keep training hard to extend the good streak for a long time.”
“As we can see, the day-to-day work is paying off, and I’m also happy for all of you, of course. It’s been a long time since you have experienced a situation like this and we hope to keep giving you a good vibe.”
“As you know, during the week we won at home against Ipswich Town in the Capital One Cup, so we can carry on in this competition. I went home feeling happy because the team approached the game with the maximum respect for the opponent despite them not being in the Premier League, and from the first minute we were determined to win.”
“With his great goal, Andreas Pereira showed everyone how talented he is. He’s eager to keep growing as a player and I’m sure he will keep contributing good things to the team.”
“And last Saturday we extended our streak in the Premier League to three consecutive wins by defeating Sunderland. It was a good game, we played almost all the time where we want to be – in the opponent’s half of the pitch, and we scored the goals in key moments.”
“Personally, I enjoyed it, especially in the second half, and I was lucky to score at the end. I’m feeling very comfortable in this start of the season, and as soon as the week goes by I’m already looking forward to the next one, to keep enjoying myself and competing.”
“Our victory, together with City’s defeat, took us to the top spot in the table, which is something new for me since I came to Manchester United. From the first day I was hoping to see the team in this place that the club has occupied so many times in the past.”
“Our current position is a consequence of the good work, but right now, still in September, it doesn’t mean anything if we don’t keep working, and we know that. We have ambition, but we are aware that the way ahead is very long and tough.”
Juan Mata is expected to start tomorrow night, in the Champions League, against VfL Wolfsburg.
