Juan Mata has spoken for the first time as a Manchester United player.
– Juan Mata
The last six months were difficult because I didn't play as much as I wanted.
The 25-year-old struggled for game time this season under Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
Manchester United said the club's record £37 million signing would wear the number eight shirt rather than the number seven used by former greats David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and Eric Cantona.
Mata is expected to make his debut tomorrow against Cardiff City at Old Trafford.
The only thing I want to do is play because I'm looking forward to playing and to try my best for the team, to help give the team their confidence back.
