Adnan Januzaj: I’m going to learn a lot from Juan Mata at Man United
Adnan Januzaj is hoping to learn from club-record signing Juan Mata at Manchester United
Adnan Januzaj is hoping that he will be able to improve his own game playing alongside Juan Mata at Manchester United in the seasons to come.
The Red Devils snapped up the 25-year-old in a club-record £37.1m deal from Chelsea last month after the Spain playmaker fell out of favour under new Blues boss Jose Mourinho.
He scores goals and gives assists. We are very happy to have Mata at the club
And United teenager Januzaj is hoping that he will be able to learn from the former Chelsea and Valencia star at Old Trafford.
“He is a great player and I think I am going to learn a lot from him,” Januzaj told MUTV.
“He is a technical player who is very clever. He scores goals and gives assists. We are very happy to have Mata at the club.”
Januzaj was voted Manchester United’s player of the month for January after making seven appearances for the Red Devils.
And the midfielder, who turns 19 this week, is satisfied with his progress so far this season.
“I am quite pleased with my year, I have done a lot of work and have been integrating into the first team,” he said. “I have played games and I think there is more to come. I hope to win trophies at this club and be the best player.”
Upon receiving the award, Januzaj added: “I would like to thank all of the fans, my team-mates and the coaches. I am very happy with this trophy and I hope it is not the last one. I hope there will be a lot more to come.”
