Juan Mata: I still call my mum before every match

Manchester United star Juan Mata has told BBC Radio 5 Live about calling his mum from the team bus before every match.

Speaking to 5 Live Breakfast’s Hugh Ferris, Mata also spoke about how tough it is being a Manchester United player at the moment with the club being 12th in the Premier League and just two points above the relegation zone.

The Spaniard, who is one of a select few players to have won the World Cup, European Championship, Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup, was speaking around the release of his autobiography.
