Juan Mata has revealed his ideal five-a-side team made up of Manchester United players.

The Spaniard says he would want to line up with Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria, at the risk of upsetting fellow Spaniard Ander Herrera.

Asked which players he would pick for his team, Mata told ManUtd.com: “I don’t want to be unfair on everyone else but I would definitely pick an offensive team.

“So it would be me, Wazza, Robin, Radamel and Angel. Ander will be angry with me but I don’t mind!”

Mata also revealed some of his pre-match superstitions in the same interview.

He added: “I have some routines, yes. I always put my left boot on first and then I always step onto the pitch with my right foot first. They’re only silly little things but I always do them.”
