Manchester United won 2-1 against Leicester at Old Trafford. A pass from the international Spaniard to Luke Shaw ended up with the second goal for the locals. Juan, who was very active, also had a chance to score and played the whole match.
Juan Mata will seek from this Friday on to conquer the only trophy of English football that has not yet won. Leicester will be the first rival. The Spanish international has 47 goals and 56 assists in 221 Premier appearances.
The Red Devils lost to Bayern 1-0 at the Allianz, stadium where Juan conquered the Champions in 2012. Mata started the game, as he has done in four of the five previous friendlies. This Friday against Leicester ManU will debut in the Premier League 2018/19.
Juan was one of the best in the 2-1 against Madrid in Miami. He showed all his quality in a good play that ended up with the second goal of United. With this match, Man U ends their preparation in the International Champions Cup.
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.
