Mata eyes longer Man Utd stay

London, May 22 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 5/22/2020 9:42:49 AM IST

Juan Mata is determined to remain at Manchester United for years to come as he looks towards making a landmark appearance for the club once football returns in England.

The Spanish midfielder joined United from Chelsea in January 2014 and his next appearance for the Red Devils will be his 250th for the team.

Mata admitted he was not previously aware of the upcoming landmark but that it fills him with pride and he wants to stay part of the first-team picture at Old Trafford for years to come.

Speaking in a video on United’s Twitter account, Mata said, “It feels like it has gone very quickly, it feels like time flies. I didn’t know it was going to be my 250th game, but I feel proud.”

“When you play your first game you feel like you are in a new beginning, a very exciting moment in your life playing for this club. I don’t want to stop here, I want to keep going and going, and keep adding games in a United shirt.”

Mata recalled many of his Manchester United memories, including arriving at the club via helicopter to complete his £40 million ($49m) signing, and being welcomed by then-United manager David Moyes and his fellow Spain international David de Gea.

He made his United debut in the Premier League against Cardiff City, who by coincidence were managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, now his boss at Old Trafford.
