Arsenal legend Ian Wright names Man United star as his ‘man crush’

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has a soft spot for Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata

Juan Mata is undoubtedly one of the coolest players in the Premier League.

And the Manchester United midfielder has earned himself a special admirer in the shape of Arsenal legend Ian Wright.

The former Gunners striker was analysing Mata’s performance in a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa in the Premier League on Friday night for Match Of The Day.

And the second-highest Arsenal goal-scorer of all-time gushed about Mata’s ability before he declared the United midfielder his man crush.

The Spain international made his first assist of the season to tee up Adnan Januzaj for United’s winner in a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.

The £37.1m signing has won over the hearts of United supporters since his move to Old Trafford from Chelsea in January 2013.

Mata has scored 15 goals in 50 Premier League appearances for United over the past season-and-a-half at the 20-time English champions.

Mata is yet to open his account of the new Premier League season.
