Man United need to sustain winning feeling, says Juan Mata
Manchester United's club-record signing Juan Mata urges the Red Devils to sustain their "winning feeling"
Juan Mata has urged Manchester United to “sustain the winning feeling” after making a victorious start to his Red Devils career.
The 25-year-old provided a pass in the lead up to Robin van Persie’s goal before teeing up Ashley Young as the defending champions ran out comfortable 2-0 winners against struggling Cardiff City at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
If any club can come back and climb the table it is this club
And Spain international Mata, who joined the 20-time English champions in a club-record £37.1m deal from Chelsea on Saturday, is feeling positive that United can start to the climb the Premier League table.
“We need to sustain that feeling for sure,” Mata told United’s website.
“I am always positive. If any club can come back and climb the table it is this club. We will try to win as many games as we can to the end of the season, hopefully all of them.”
Mata admitted that he thoroughly enjoyed his Old Trafford debut, adding that he immediately felt settled at United after meeting with his new team-mates.
“The stadium is unbelievable,” Mata added. “The fans are so loud, even before the game. It has been an amazing time for me. Even social media has shown me so much. The amount of fans this club has is unbelievable.
“I have felt comfortable at this club from the first minute. The players have made me feel like this. To be honest last week I didn’t train that much because of the transfer. I can improve. But I felt okay. I felt good playing alongside these players.”
