Newcastle United v Manchester United - Premier League

Former Chelsea star Deco believes that Jose Mourinho made a big mistake selling Juan Mata to Manchester United in January.

Mourinho appeared to prefer Brazilian Oscar to Mata and allowed the Spaniard to leave STamford Bridge for £37m, but since Oscar has failed to impress whilst Mata has shown why United made him their record signing.

Speaking to The Daily Express, Deco said:

“It is difficult to see how Chelsea are going to score a goal. They depend on Oscar doing well and Eden Hazard. They have the quality that if they are doing well, the team will get plenty of chances.

“But Eden Hazard has been injured and Oscar has not played so well of late and they have struggled to come up with something different.

“So I don’t know why Jose sold Mata in January because he is a good player. Maybe now he could be important for Chelsea. I am sure Jose knows what he is doing, but Mata seemed to have started well for Chelsea.”

    Mata the best.

    Deco has a good point. Mata is a very good player, but I guess Jose thought that he was surplus to requirements at Chelsea. I am glad that Mourinho sold him to United. Please check out my blog at The Red Devils Blog.
