[vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” css_animation=””][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Asturian footballer appears as part of the promotional campaign for the latest instalment of the Star Wars saga. In the advert, he features alongside several of his Spanish international team-mates. This Saturday, West Ham will visit Old Trafford (3pm).

Aside from his footballing abilities, Juan Mata manages himself very well in front of the cameras. He is one of Manchester United’s most high-profile players, and his advertising appeal is also exploited when he is called up to represent Spain. One example is his appearance in the advert in which Movistar, a sponsoring partner of the Spanish national team, announces the arrival of the new Star Wars film in cinemas.

However, a droid decides to stop him, prompting a gesture of surprise from him and Iker.

Meanwhile in the real world, Juan and his team-mates will welcome West Ham to Old Trafford on Saturday (3pm UK time). A point behind City and Leicester, United will look for a win that will help them draw closer to the top of the table and also boost their morale ahead of the decisive Champions League match in Wolfsburg next week.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
