Manchester midfielder Juan Mata, may not be having plenty minutes on the pitch anymore, but the veteran playmaker is still an influence in the team.
Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes, has spoken highly of Mata, and has revealed the influence the Spaniard has had on him at the club.
In an interview with the club’s official website, Fernandes was asked who his best friend in the United squad is, and he responded: “So that’s a hard one because I have a good relationship with everyone, honestly, but I think I would probably choose Juan [Mata] because I learn a lot from him in this two years.
“He’s been someone who’s been really special and make me better every day, on and off the pitch. He made me grow up to be a better player and a better person also.”
