The Manchester United player had a conversation with Jorge Valdano about football, social responsibility -Common Goal-, family and future plans. “It is important that a player takes advantage of his position to send positive messages”, he said.
After 13 wins and 2 draws in Premier League and FA Cup, Manchester United were defeated at the Emirates against Arsenal (2-0). On Saturday, they’ll have to play against Wolverhampton with the FA Cup semifinal at stake.
Manchester United rallied from 0-2 at Old Trafford and qualified for the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Rashford, from the penalty spot in the 94th minute, made the final 1-3. Lukaku scored the other two goals for the Red Devils, who have won nine consecutive games as visitors.
Several stadiums have had a big impact on my career (Mestalla, Stamford bridge, Old Trafford, Soccer City, The Olympic Stadium of Kiev, Allianz Arena, Wembley, Amsterdam Arena…) but football has let me travel so I’ve had the chance of meeting plenty more. I’ve located and compiled them so that you can see them on my particular ‘Mata´s wold map’. I hope you like it.
