Mata: We must be ready for a busy run
Hi everyone... on Thursday we play our first midweek game. A busy run of matches, away trips and flights… that's what the next three weeks are going to be like. Therefore, we have to be prepared both physically and mentally.
Everyone at the club believes that Manchester United should be playing in the Champions League every season, but we have to accept where we are, respect the competition and our opponents and ask the most from ourselves. I have been lucky enough to get the chance to lift this trophy alongside my team-mates in Stockholm and I remember how sweet it tasted after winning such a title.
We are expecting to play against an opponent who wants to make history at Old Trafford, but for us it is very important to kick off with a win.
Earlier this week, we had the amazing news that David has extended his contract with the club and wants to stay to get Manchester United and the fans back to where they belong. I’ll have to keep holding onto him for a few more years yet!
