After a strong end to the season, Juan Mata is hoping to pick up where he left off next season with the help of attacking tactics from Louis van Gaal.

“The last three or four months for me were great,” he said. “I played a lot. I scored some goals. So I am looking forward to being there and to try my best for the team. It’s been a difficult year, but I think this season we will improve and we will try to win again, because Manchester United is about winning and fighting for titles. [Van Gaal] is a very experienced manager. He likes to play in an offensive way, so hopefully he can bring success and trophies to the club and to the players.”
