Mata explains why he ran to hug De Gea after scoring

Juan Mata ran over to David de Gea after scoring his free-kick against Newcastle United today because the goalkeeper told him he would score, Mata explained after the full time whistle.

It was a moment of genuine Spanish bromance as Mata galloped over to embrace De Gea.

Having a compatriot at a club must really help any foreign player settle down, even if they speak English and are accustomed to the Premier League.

It won’t be long before Mata sells his house on the same street as De Gea and decides to move in with him so they can spend even more time with each other.

Their friendship has no doubt helped both of them as since Mata arrived, De Gea’s performances have continued to improve and Mata would probably not have been able to settle as quickly as he has done without De Gea at the club.

Both players could also be part of Spain’s squad for the World Cup and if Spain manage to continue their domination of international football, we’ll have two World Cup winners in the squad.
