Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho can improve me, insists Juan Mata
Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata is confident Blues boss Jose Mourinho can improve the Spain international
Juan Mata believes Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho can help the playmaker become an even better player.
The 25-year-old has found himself out-of-favour under the Blues boss this season despite being named Chelsea’s player of the year last season.
However, Mata is remaining upbeat and wants to use the opportunity to improve on his weaknesses as he aims to win back his starting spot.
“I will play wherever he demands,” Mata told the Sun. “I am young and can still improve. I want to do the same as I did in the last two seasons.
“My dad always said if you are left-footed improve with your right.
“I have to improve defensively, too. Every single player has to. To be the perfect player is very difficult but I have tried throughout my career to improve a lot.”
He added: “I think Jose can help me. Every manager can try to improve their players. It’s his job to bring the best out of his players.
“Last season was the best in my career, but I could still have done better.
“Jose’s a manager who analyses everything, not just in our team. He’s a manager who likes intensity, who likes pressure. We have eight months to go to the World Cup and I believe in myself more than ever.”
