Mata: Hopefully I will be back soon
Today I am writing this from home in Manchester. It is has been another different week, without being able to play, but there are reasons to be optimistic.
I watched the game at the Emirates at home too. A defeat that wasn’t desired but has to be played down. I believe that we deserved more against Arsenal.
It resulted in our first defeat with Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] in domestic competition (Premier and FA Cup), where we had amassed 15 matches unbeaten. Despite this disappointment, we continue moving forward with the motivation to get back to winning ways, and we do so with confidence.
To finish talking about last week, obviously we have to discuss Paris. It is something difficult to explain with just words. A historic night. To come back from 2-0 down is tough, but to do so against an opponent like PSG is even more difficult.
This magical night represented the greatness of Manchester United and it will be, without doubt, remembered forever in the history of our club. We’re already looking forward to playing in the quarter-finals.
We want to be in the semi-finals of a tournament that is very special for everyone, and to do so we will have to put in a good performance against opponents who are having a great season.
Thank you for your messages and I hope that you have a fantastic week. I’m going to keep doing everything I can to be back fit as soon as possible.
