Juan Mata wins Man Utd’s Player of the Month
Juan Mata has been named the Manchester United’s player of the month.Red Devils have revealed that it is the closest poll they’ve ever had, with Mata taking 198 more votes than Spain international team-mate Herrera with a total of 90,000 submissions counted.
However, just 1% seperated Mata and Herrera with the former Chelsea man coming out on top with 44% of the vote.
Astonishingly, but with just 198 votes in it and Manchester United confirmed that it was their closest ever vote.
United won just two games in October, the EFL Cup derby victory over Manchester City and a 4-1 Europa League triumph against Fenerbahce.
Mata was the hero in that cup clash at Old Trafford, scoring the winning goal after 54 minutes, but he was unable to help his side beat Burnley in Saturday.
It is the fifth time since joining United in 2014 that Mata has been awarded the club’s player of the month award.
The last time he was awarded the prize was in September 2015.
