You know Manchester United have had a bad result at the weekend when even Juan Mata is left sad and disappointed.
United’s self implosion away to Leicester City after having a two goal lead twice in the game left United fans feeling dumbstruck and it’s a sentiment which is shared by Mata.
“Today it took me a long time to sit down in front of the computer in order not to miss my weekly meeting with you,” he wrote in his weekly blog.
“I have waited a few hours before facing the white screen to try to express how I feel after the game in Leicester. After a whole week waiting for the match I could not imagine a Sunday like this. The way back from Leicester to Manchester on the bus seemed really long.”
Mata can consider himself unlucky not to have started the game but the Spaniard unfortunately found himself directly involved in Leicester scoring their fourth goal after he was caught in possession in their half.
The first half against Leicester was a Disney film with everything falling happily into place with some wonderful football. The second half was a horror film that got darker with every minute that passed.
It’s going to be a very long week for United fans after defeat to Leicester but Mata is trying to immediately look forward towards Saturday now: “I hope to be in a better mood next Sunday to tell you about the game and many other things, to try to put a smile in our face on Monday. Thank you for being there in the good and the bad times and never giving up. It is important to feel your support.
Hope you have a good week. Hugs.”
