Juan Mata was announced as Manchester United’s Player of the Month for March last week, and the the club have now uploaded a video of him thanking the fans.

The award confirms a remarkable turnaround in fortunes for Mata, who’d spent most of January and February sitting on the bench, frozen out of the pitcture by Louis van Gaal.

But he was reinstated into the first team for the mid-March win over Spurs, and following that, he scored two brilliant goals at Anfield, scooping the man of the match award in the process.

Mata now looks to have finally gained the trust of Louis van Gaal, and could prove a key figure in United’s race for fourth.
