Manchester United: Mata tells Chelsea manager Mourinho what he’s missing

by | 18th, October 2015

Juan Mata, of Manchester Untied , has been talking to the Times:

On Jose Mourinho calling him a “luxury”:

“If a luxury player is a player who scores and assists and has good stats, then I’m happy to be a luxury player.”

On the goals:

“I’ve scored as many goals for Manchester United in the Premier League as for Chelsea, but in something like 30 games less. “In terms of scoring and assisting I’m quite happy with the stats, and stats don’t lie. They are facts. I want luxury players in my team. I like creative players, and players who do different things. It’s easy to say certain players are luxuries, especially when you’ve lost a game. When you lose, a certain kind of player — the creative players — always get the blame.”

And back to Jose:

“I’ve not tried to prove anyone wrong. I didn’t speak with Mourinho like he has spoken with you, for example. I never had any explanations and didn’t ask for them.”

Mata was Chelsea’s Players’ Player of the Year when Mourinho sold him.
