Twitter reaction as Man United’s Juan Mata is left out the Spain squad for the friendly v Italy
- February 28, 2014
It’s now been a month since Juan Mata’s £37m move from Chelsea to Manchester United.
The Spanish star is yet to make an impact at Old Trafford after winning the Chelsea Player of the Year award twice in a row.
Late Friday morning it emerged that Juan Mata had been left out of the Spain squad for their friendly against Italy.
With his World Cup hopes hanging by a thread, below are some of the best tweets on the subject.
Hard to criticise Del Bosque for excluding Mata when he's picked Alonso, Busquets, Xavi, Koke, Thiago, Iniesta, Navas, Cazorla & Fabregas…

Juan Mata not in Spain squad. Surely among the most expensive players to be left out of a national team.

Cleverley and Defoe in England squad; Juan Mata not in Spain squad

So this Spain team that Aus will face at WC is good enough right now to leave out: Mata, Torres, Isco, Llorente, Villa, Puyol, DeGea. Scary

Torres and Mata can't get in the Spain squad, and we pick Tom Cleverley :-(

Spain have so much talent they can afford to drop Mata etc. They should have two squads lol

Juan Mata hasn't had a great season, has he? Disaster season for him.

Not looking good for Juan Mata's 2014 World Cup hopes. Players left out of the Spain squad at this point probably won't get back in. #mufc
