Like Velcro! Manchester United’s Juan Mata kills the ball stone dead with incredible first touch [Video]

Juan Mata’s work-rate and defensive abilities have been put into question this season (and under Mourinho at Chelsea), but his first touch of velcro has never been in doubt.

In a video stunt with F2Freestylers, the Manchester United midfielder was given a challenge: how’s your first touch under a bit of pressure?

The Freestyler launched the ball 50 yars into the air, and as it began its descent, Mata kept his eye on it the whole way and got right underneath it.

He then killed it stone dead with an incredible touch, and flicked it between his legs to begin a dribble.

Like velcro!
