In a recent interview, the Spanish legend revealed the truth about the rumours related to his team’s ace Cristiano Ronaldo. According to some sources, United players had stopped eating dessert with their meals at Carrington – all due to Ronaldo – but Mata laughed off those claims.

Mata said: “There was banter between tables, but nothing serious. Cristiano does a very logical thing over a holiday, he invests his energy, his effort and his time in his well-being. I mean, it makes total sense to try and be the best you can be in your body and mind, not only to play football, but to live a healthier and better life. That’s what he does.”

“I think maybe this debate [whether he fits United’s style] exists because of who he is. He’s top scorer in the history of professional football so people are going to speak about him, whether good or bad. What is true is his standards and his will to win, to show himself in the most important moments of the season. He has the capacity to do that.

“So it has been a great experience to get to know him better, to train with him and to see also how he understands football. I have had many conversations with him about football. He’s a bit older than me – so maybe he doesn’t look at it like this – but I think we are from the generation who saw football in a different way to the new generation.”
