MATA IS CONFIDENT
Manchester United’s January signing Juan Mata says that he is confident that the club will be able to finish in the top four and also fight for titles in the coming seasons. The future of United has been uncertain after the appointment of David Moyes. The Scot has been unable to lead the club like its predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson.
United are no longer competing with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City for the title. Even worrying for the club is their inability to finish in the top for this campaign, as they are a distant seventh place with only 10 matches remaining.
Mata moved to United only in January from Chelsea for a club record £ 37.1 million, but he has so far not had a great impact. The Spaniard is yet to open his scoring account for the new club, although he has contributed in terms of several assists. United are in danger of using out on Champions League football almost entirely, as they are about to be knocked out of the competition by Olympiakos, who have a 2-0 aggregate advantage from the first leg. Mata, though, says that United will be able to challenge for titles not only this year, but also in the coming seasons as well.
"I think Man Utd is always going to be fighting for every title. This season in the Premier League we were not winning that well earlier in the season, but I think next year and the years coming this team is going to fight for every title. It is what it has to do and what it has always being doing. When you are outside of the club you see Man Utd as one of the biggest clubs in the world. And being inside you have time to realise it is true," said Mata.
