Rumours were doing the rounds last week that intimated that Juan Mata might be making a return to Valencia once this season comes to an end.

Well on the evidence of what we witnessed against Liverpool, at Anfield, this afternoon, I reckon we`d be fools to let he Spaniard go.

For me, Mata showed what a star he is with that performance and afterwards, the second most expensive acquisition in our history, had this to say about his two-goal winning display,

‘I think it’s my best game in a United shirt, yes. It’s a massive game, probably the biggest in English football, so to score two goals is great for me.

‘The second goal has to be up there with my best. After Steven Gerrard was sent off we needed a second goal because they pushed us to the end.

‘It was important for me. The last few months I’ve not had the best moment. It is the manager who decides but I’m happy today.’


I think, today, Juan Mata showed Louis van Gaal exactly what he is quite capable of.
