Juan Mata: I can't believe I'm at Manchester United

Juan Mata is still in awe at the fact that he is a Manchester United player.

The 32-year-old signed for United in 2014 and he has won the Europa League, FA Cup, and League Cup while making over 200 appearances.

He has played under David Moyes, Louis Van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, so he is part of the furniture at Old Trafford, but still has to pinch himself every day.

"That feeling of being a Manchester United player is really special and almost unique in football," the Spaniard said in Amazon Prime's exclusive docuseries Living Abroad.

"At times it feels surreal that in the morning I put on that shirt to train that I play in the stadium where players like Eric Cantona, George Best, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, and Paul Scholes have played.

"Players I watched as a kid from far away and especially that generation of Beckham, Scholes, Giggs and now I'm playing in their team and I am proud of that.

"I've been at the club for more than six years now, I've had a lot of good memories, with European titles like the Europa League and winning the FA Cup and winning the Carabao Cup, a cup I had never won and I was especially happy to win it.

"I'm excited to see United as a champion of a really important competition again like the Premier or Champions League which is where I think this club should be competing."

Mata first arrived in England in 2011 when he joined Chelsea from Valencia.
