You can’t help but feel sorry for Manchester United’s Juan Mata.
This time last year he was on course to being crowned Chelsea’s player of the year for the second season running, whilst on course to pick up a Europa League medal to go with the Champions League and FA Cup he won the year before.
Now, he finds himself dumped by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, and taking orders from the clueless David Moyes at Old Trafford.
United’s horror show in Greece on Tuesday night further highlighted how far Mata has fallen in such a short space of time.
And it’s not as if he could do much to help, considering he is cup tied.
But Mata is going to have to suck it up, and continue life at Old Trafford – if Mourinho’s leaked missed calls record is anything to go by.
