One win away from glory

A 2-0 win over Sivasspor leaves Juan Mata’s Galatasaray one win away from the title. It would be the 23rd Super League for Turkey’s most successful club and the first league title for Juan, who would complete a remarkable record.

One step closer to the title

Galatasaray’s win over İstanbul BB consolidates their lead in the Super League, five points clear of the chasing pack. Juan Mata is on his way to his first league title.

A deluxe team to improve football

Juan Mata is one of the members of the UEFA Football Board, which has held its first meeting. Along with him, and under the direction of Zvonimir Boban, this advisory body includes Mourinho, Ancelotti, Zidane, Maldini, Figo, Ferdinand, Laudrup, Benítez or Čech.

On the way to completing a historical record

Juan Mata is in an excellent position to win a League, the only major trophy missing from his list of winners. Galatasaray is top of the table, six points ahead of Fenerbahçe.

My book


It is not the same to play football and be a footballer. Here, I try to explain how my life has been shaped by the beautiful game, the experiences I have had, and the decisions I had to make along the way, consciously or subconsciously, on and off the pitch.



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.
