Jose Mourinho must be the only man around who doesn't like Juan Mata. The Spaniard is an extremely interesting guy, and only two weeks ago addressed the matter of footballer's wages -a topic which many in his profession would like to exploit rather than discuss. Mata admitted in an interview that 'I earn an obscene amount', and shone a light on the fact that football exists within its own bubble.
Mata has a quality many footballers are devoid of - perspective - and as a result shows a regard for supporters and those less fortunate that his fellow professionals do not. Mata scored the winner in an otherwise stultifying 1-0 win away to Norwich, and after the game went over to meet a disabled young fan, posing for photographs. The reaction of the child's father here is particularly great:

Fantastic as always. A 1-0 win for United means that the top four race is seriously hotting up, with Arsenal and City meeting tomorrow.
