Juan Mata is a fantastic player and we have been working hard to provide the most fantastic resource that is both enjoyable to use and useful.
(PRWEB UK) 27 November 2012
Digital Sports Group today announced that The PFA profile for the professional footballer Juan Mata has been been updated. The PFA player profiles provide a unique and unrivalled insight into a professional footballers career with full career stats, news biographies and features.
Mata became the third Spaniard to join Chelsea in 2011, following international team-mate and fellow World Cup-winner Fernando Torres and Oriol Romeu, who arrived from Barcelona earlier in August 2011.
Primarily a left-winger, he can also operate down the middle and outlined his desire to adapt quickly to English football. Yossi Benayoun's anticipated departure freed up his favoured number 10 jersey.
He certainly looked at home on his debut, appearing as a substitute against Norwich City and slotting home the final goal in a 3-1 win in late August.
The mercurial Mata has certainly made himself a fans' favourite, and a switch to a more central role in between the main striker later in the campaign allowed him greater licence to roam and create from a central position. His importance is evident by the fact he missed just one game from December, remaining a constant in the team under both Andre Villas-Boas and Roberto Di Matteo.
After competing in the first few games of the 2012/13 season, Mata was given a two-week rest by Roberto Di Matteo due to his participation in both the European Championships and London Olympics, and it was a decision which was rewarded in style on his return
After laying on Ashley Cole's winner against Stoke City, Mata then scored four goals in three successive matches, against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Arsenal and FC Nordsjaelland.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Juan Mata is a fantastic player and we have been working hard to provide the most fantastic resource that is both enjoyable to use and useful.
