Nothing wrong with swooning over one of your very own and every week, Mata gives you another couple of reasons to smile.
If his cameo performance against Norwich City wasn’t enough, his fist pump celebration after Wayne Rooney tucked away his penalty was fantastic to see.

After the game as well, Mata took his time to give something back to the fans and instead of doing your usual autograph, he gave these two fans a cracking memory. Small differences but in terms of a player/fan relationship, they can mean the most.
Today is Mata’s 26th birthday and he’ll be releasing his weekly blog today, so there’ll be plenty of hugs all round from the Spaniard who is quickly becoming one of the most likeable players Manchester United have ever had.
