Jose Mourinho Hints at Juan Mata Weakness After Manchester United Transfer
Jose Mourinho has suggested he was unable to improve Juan Mata’s game at Chelsea, a failure that forced him to offload the Spaniard to rivals Manchester United.
As reported by Sky Sports, Mourinho hints that Mata didn’t make any improvement on some areas of the pitch, despite playing some “good matches” out of position for the side:
“I am sorry that I didn’t make him a stronger player. Maybe it was something new for him, not to be a first choice (player) in a difficult moment.
Maybe that made him, as a man, as a player, stronger but I gave him nothing to be honest and I feel sorry with that.”
