Juan Mata has insisted that he doesn’t take satisfaction from seeing Jose Mourinho struggle at Chelsea.

The Spain international moved to Manchester United in a then club-record £37.1m deal from Chelsea after he was deemed surplus to requirements by Mourinho despite winning back-to-back player of the year awards at the club.

Chelsea have slumped to 16th place in the Premier League table and are 14 points behind leaders Manchester City after a 1-0 loss to Stoke City at The Britannia on Saturday evening.

However, Mata doesn’t hold any grudges despite being frozen out of Chelsea by the outspoken 52-year-old manager, whose side have lost seven of their 12 Premier League games.

“No, I’m not that kind of person,” Mata told Goal.com.

“I’m a person who doesn’t think bad about other people or feel happy when other people don’t get results. I’m just happy because of what I’m living, because my life is good, I’m happy where I am and nothing else.

“I don’t like to think about others losing or not performing well. No, no – I’m not that kind of person.”

Mata scored a 90th-minute penalty after Jesse Lingard gave United a slender lead against the Baggies at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The former Chelsea midfielder has scored four goals and has made three assists in 11 Premier League games this term.
