Juan Mata has done a Q&A with questions from fans over the club’s official Facebook page.
Do you have any pre-match superstitions?
I have some routines, yes. I always put my left boot on first and then I always step onto the pitch with my right foot first. They’re only silly little things but I always do them.
What’s been your favourite part about signing for the greatest club in the world?
It’s just the feeling that you have when you play for such a massive club knowing that you are followed by millions and millions of people around the world.
Which team-mates would you pick alongside you in a five-a-side team?
I don’t want to be unfair on everyone else but I would definitely pick an offensive team. So it would be me, Wazza, Robin, Radamel and Angel. Ander will be angry with me but I don’t mind! [Laughs]
What’s the best goal you’ve ever scored?
I’m not sure if there is any footage of it but I would say one I scored for Spain for the Under-19s. It was a chip from midfield. It’s a good goal I’m very happy with.
You’ve taken time to visit a number of places in and around Manchester and in the countryside – what’s your favourite?
I just like everything about the lifestyle I have here. It’s very relaxing. I have been to lots of different parts of the city and have also been to other places like Chester and the Lake District which were very nice. I’m enjoying finding out more about England because the north is different to the south.
