Juan Mata was a late substitute during Man United’s 5-3 defeat on Sunday…
Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata was forced to make a grovelling apology to his club’s fans as he relived the 5-3 defeat at the hands of Leicester City on his personal blog.
The 26-year-old Spaniard posted this short piece on Monday morning, entitled: ‘We have to stand up and keep going’. He said:
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. 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.
I keep thinking about how we lost a game that was under control, but the thing is we were ahead, they equalised and when we tried to get advantage again we lost. It’s really tough to score three goals away and come back home with no points. On our way back to Manchester I was thinking about what had happened and felt so disappointed as all those that came with us to the stadium. Honestly, I feel very sorry that the weekend ended up for our fans in such a sad way.
There is time during the week to analyse what happened and learn from our mistakes so as not to make them again. Now we play two consecutive games in Old Trafford that we want to win for our fans. We will put our best efforts to it, you can be sure of that.
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,
