Juan Mata and Antonio Valencia are all smiles at Manchester United's training ground
Juan Mata has taken to social media to wish Antonio Valencia a happy birthday after the Manchester United winger turned 31 on Thursday.
The Spanish midfielder posed for a picture with his Manchester United team-mate after training at the club’s Carrington complex and uploaded the snap of the duo onto his personal Instagram account.
Mata shared the photo on the app and wrote: “Have a great day @antoniovalencia2525!”
Mata and Valencia will both be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils take on Leicester City in Sunday’s Community Shield clash at Wembley.
The Red Devils are gearing up for their first competitive game under new manager Jose Mourinho as the Premier League kick-off draws ever nearer.
United moved quickly to bring in Mourinho after they finished fifth in the Premier League last season under former boss Louis van Gaal, and also won the FA Cup.
Mata was sold by Mourinho to United during his time in charge of Chelsea in January 2014.
