Juan Mata: We're united for Sir Alex

Each and every Monday during the season, Manchester United star Juan Mata pens a personal blog. This week, he focuses on Sir Alex Ferguson following Saturday's shock news about the former manager...

This blog’s entry is going to be particularly short, if you don’t mind. This Saturday, all of us were overwhelmed by the news about Sir Alex Ferguson’s health condition.

This circumstance has had a huge impact on Manchester United, as you can imagine. All of us are united right now, wishing Sir Alex a speedy recovery. He has been a unique and fundamental figure in the football world over the last few decades.
Phil Jones says

"Sir Alex is the man who brought me to this club and took me under his wing. The news was shocking but I know his character. He has that fight in him and we are all rooting for him."

I’ve never been coached by him, unfortunately, yet I know well his incomparable legacy on this club, that winning mentality and fighting gene that we must honour in the last three games of the season, especially in the FA Cup final. To achieve that, we are going to work hard while we eagerly await good news about Sir Alex’s recovery.

Have a nice week.

Hugs, Juan.
