There is something about Juan Mata, that floods you heart with a warm feeling every time he enters the scene. It must be the blue eyes, the curly hair and boyish charm or it can be the fact that he is really good at playing football. Whatever the reason he has the fuzzy effect on gents and ladies alike. He is just altogether pleasant, friendly and level headed player. He is nonchalance personified. He has what can be termed as one of the most important quality a football must absolutely possess- a cool head. You can score as many goals from whatever fancy positions, but if you rub the referees and your fellow players the wrong way, you have just lost out on your character impression. And character is very important in Sports. It is the underlying principle of good sportsman spirit.

Like previously stated, it is not just his genial nature that is outstanding, but Juan Mata statistics are also equally matched, if not more. He is a very integral part of the Football club- Chelsea, so much so that people claim that whenever Mata doesn’t play in the starting lineup, the club fails to win the match. He brings in a creative aspect to scoring and assisting which is like a breath of fresh air to the rest of the men in Blue. The Spanish fielder has led the team to victory, almost single handedly, on many occasions. Just last season, he helped Chelsea trounce the Totten ham Hotspurs at White Hart Lane.
