Manchester United won a close match away at Southampton yesterday, with Anthony Martial stealing the headlines once again. Another player who got himself on the scoresheet was Juan Mata, who rounded off a superb 45 pass move with a goal.
After the game, Mata met the media and dedicated the victory to Luke Shaw, who broke his leg in two places against PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night.
“This victory is for Luke Shaw.” Juan Mata said.
What a classy man Juan Mata is. He has always been a fan favourite since his move to Manchester United and comments like this are exactly why. Similarly to his playing style, the Spaniard always has his teammates in mind.
Hopefully now Manchester United can now go on a long unbeaten run in the Premier League, and really test themselves to see if they can mount a serious title challenge.
