The Chelsea midfielder was pleased to be reunited with his former team-mate Juan Mata
Oscar has sent a heartfelt message to his former Chelsea team-mate Juan Mata after their 4-0 win against his current employers Manchester United.
The Red Devils signed Mata in a then club-record £37.1m deal from Chelsea in January 2013 after he was deemed surplus to requirements under Jose Mourinho.
Ironically, the Portuguese head coach took over the reins of the Old Trafford club in May following their fifth-place finish in the Premier League last term.
Mata was powerless to prevent the Manchester club suffering a humiliating 4-0 defeat by their title rivals at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
While it was a forgettable afternoon for United, Mata was reunited with some old friends, including Brazil international Oscar.
And the South American dedicated an Instagram post to his former Spanish team-mate.
“Morning !! Nice to see u my friend !!”
Mata and Oscar won the Europa League and the FA Cup under Rafael Benitez in 2013.
Chelsea are in fourth place in the Premier League table and a point adrift of leaders Manchester City.
