Man United celebrate 'plain awesome' Mata with Twitter tribute

Manchester United posted a brilliant compilation of Juan Mata’s finest moments off the pitch to mark his three years at Old Trafford.

David Moyes is not remembered fondly for many things by Manchester United fans, but signing Juan Mata from Chelsea is certainly one highlight.

The Spain international moved to Old Trafford from Stamford Bridge on January 25, 2014, for what was then a club-record fee of £37.1million.

Mata was highly regarded by Chelsea fans and has gone on to establish himself as a firm favourite among the United faithful, making 131 appearances in all competitions and winning the FA Cup and the Community Shield last year.
