Hey guys, have you been following the recent success of Juan Mata? It seems like leaving Manchester United was the best career move the Spaniard could have made. Less than two years after bidding farewell to the Red Devils, Mata has already added two league titles to his trophy cabinet. Talk about lucky!
When Mata ended his five-and-a-half-year stint at Old Trafford in January 2020, many thought his glory days were behind him. At 32 years of age, Mata was deemed too old and slow to compete at the highest levels. Boy, has he proven his doubters wrong. Now plying his trade with Turkish giants Galatasaray, Mata is enjoying an unexpected renaissance. He has rediscovered his best form and cemented his status as a fan favorite in Istanbul.
While Manchester United continues to struggle, Mata is thriving and stacking up the accolades. His remarkably quick turn of fortunes just goes to show how much difference the right environment and opportunity can make. For Mata, leaving the familiarity of England for new adventures in Turkey has been a masterstroke. At this rate, more silverware could soon be heading his way.
Juan Mata Menjuarai Liga Dengan Chelsea Dan Manchester United
Juan Mata belum genap dua tahun meninggalkan Manchester United, tapi dua trofi Liga Primer Inggris sudah berhasil diraihnya. Musim pertamanya bersama Chelsea, Mata langsung menjuarai Liga pada musim 2012/2013. Kemudian, setelah pindah ke Manchester United pada Januari 2014, Mata kembali menjadi juara liga di musim pertamanya, musim 2013/2014.
###Prestasi gemilang di Chelsea
Di Chelsea, Mata menjadi salah satu pemain kunci andalan Rafael Benitez. Ia mencetak 12 gol dan memberi 19 assist di semua kompetisi, membantu The Blues meraih posisi ketiga klasemen akhir Liga Primer. Mata juga dinobatkan sebagai Pemain Terbaik PFA tahun itu.
Kesuksesan di Setan Merah
Setelah bergabung dengan Setan Merah pada Januari 2014, Mata langsung berkontribusi penting bagi tim. Ia mencetak 6 gol dan 3 assist di semua kompetisi, membantu MU merebut posisi kedua klasemen akhir Liga Primer dan meraih trofi juara liga pertamanya bersama Setan Merah.
Dengan dua gelar juara Liga Primer yang diraih dalam waktu kurang dari dua tahun, Mata patut disebut sebagai pemain yang beruntung. Dia berhasil pindah ke dua klub raksasa Inggris yang sama-sama berhasil meraih trofi juara liga di musim pertamanya bergabung. Kerja keras dan dedikasinya membuat Mata pantas mendapatkan dua piala bergengsi tersebut.
Mata Menang Liga Champions Bersama Chelsea Musim 2011/2012
When Juan Mata left Manchester United in 2019, he probably didn’t expect to win two league titles in less than two years. But that’s exactly what happened after he joined Chelsea. In his first season with the Blues, 2011-2012, Mata helped lead them to an FA Cup victory over Liverpool.
Even bigger was Chelsea’s Champions League title that same season. Mata scored in the semifinal against Barcelona, helping Chelsea advance to the final. In the championship match, Mata assisted Didier Drogba for Chelsea’s first goal. Drogba would score the winning penalty kick to give Chelsea their first Champions League title in thrilling fashion.
For Mata, leaving United so soon was difficult, but being part of that magical Champions League run with Chelsea made it worthwhile. As Mata said, “Winning the Champions League was amazing. To do it in those circumstances, with that group of players, it was very special.”
The next season, 2012-2013, Chelsea won the Europa League, giving Mata two major European trophies in just his first two seasons with the club. Add in the FA Cup, and Mata had an incredible start to his Chelsea career, winning three trophies before he even completed two full seasons.
Leaving United was hard, but Mata found success and silverware right away at Chelsea. For a player as talented as Mata, winning titles and trophies is the ultimate reward. His fast start with Chelsea showed he made the right choice to head to London, where he was able to shine on the biggest stages and lift the most prestigious trophies in football.
Mata Raih Trofi Liga Premier Bersama Manchester United Musim 2016/2017
Juan Mata has been incredibly lucky since leaving Manchester United less than two years ago. Despite the short time, he has already won two Premier League titles with his new club.
In Mata’s first season after departing Man U, his new team went on an amazing run to win the Premier League title. They were nearly unstoppable, losing only 3 matches all season. Mata contributed 7 goals and 11 assists in 30 league appearances, providing creativity and playmaking for his club’s attacking force. Though they were eliminated early in the Champions League, winning the Premier League title in his first season was a dream come true for Mata.
The next season, Mata’s club had some ups and downs but ultimately defended their Premier League title in a down-to-the-wire finish. Mata faced injury issues that limited him to only 24 league matches, though he still managed 6 goals and 8 assists when he did play. His team prevailed in their final match to edge out their rivals and lift the trophy once again.
To win two league titles so quickly after leaving Man U is a stroke of good fortune for Mata. His decision to join a new club where he could feature more prominently has paid off handsomely. Mata has proven he still has the quality to compete at the highest levels, and his new club will hope he can stay fit and help them compete for more silverware next season. After so much success already, the future looks bright for Juan Mata and his lucky new club.
Mata Meninggalkan Manchester United Januari 2014 Lalu Bergabung Dengan Chelsea
Manchester United fans were certainly sad to see Juan Mata leave Old Trafford in January 2014. After just 18 months with the Red Devils, Mata moved to rival Chelsea for a club-record £37.1 million. However, the crafty Spaniard didn’t seem too heartbroken about the transfer. In fact, the move has worked out quite well for Mata.
In just under two years since leaving United, Mata has already won two Premier League titles with Chelsea. He helped lead the Blues to the 2014-15 Premier League trophy in his first full season at Stamford Bridge. Mata scored six goals and added four assists that year, proving instrumental in Chelsea’s championship run.
The following season, Mata and Chelsea did it again. They cruised to the 2015-16 Premier League title, finishing seven points clear of second place Tottenham. Mata featured in 36 of Chelsea’s 38 league matches, starting 33 of them. He tallied six goals and 12 assists, ranking second on the team in assists.
While Mata enjoyed success at Man United, winning the FA Cup in his lone full season, he has achieved far more in less time at Chelsea. Two Premier League titles in less than two years is quite an accomplishment and vindication for Mata’s decision to join the Blues.
The fleet-footed Mata has been a perfect fit in Chelsea’s attack. His vision, passing, and finishing have added a creative spark to the Chelsea offense. Manager Jose Mourinho has deployed Mata in a central role behind the strikers, allowing him to pull the strings and link play between the midfield and attack. It’s a role Mata was born to play, and one that has paid huge dividends for Chelsea.
Looking back, leaving Manchester United for Chelsea seems to have been an astute career move for Juan Mata. He has quickly become a key figure for the Blues and has a pair of Premier League winners’ medals to show for it. While the Red Devils likely regret selling Mata, Chelsea supporters are certainly glad to have the Spanish maestro making magic at the Bridge.
Nasib Baik Mata, Baru Kurang Dari 2 Tahun Tinggalkan MU Sudah Raih 2 Gelar Juara Liga
Juan Mata pasti merasa dirinya sangat beruntung. Belum genap dua tahun meninggalkan Manchester United, gelar juara Liga Inggris dan Piala FA sudah berhasil diraihnya bersama Chelsea.
Setelah enam tahun memperkuat Setan Merah dan hanya mampu meraih satu gelar juara Piala FA, Mata memutuskan hengkang dari Old Trafford pada Januari 2014. Keputusan yang tepat, karena The Blues kini berhasil meraih dua trofi bergengsi di Inggris.
Liga Champions Masih Menjadi Target
Meski sudah dua kali juara liga, Mata dan Chelsea masih belum puas. Mereka masih mengincar trofi Liga Champions yang belum pernah diraih Chelsea sejak 2012. Bersama Mata, The Blues kini punya kesempatan lebih besar untuk bisa kembali menjuarai kompetisi paling bergengsi di Eropa itu.
Dengan pengalaman Mata di Liga Champions selama bermain untuk Valencia dan MU, ditambah kemampuan individunya yang tidak diragukan lagi, Chelsea bisa mengandalkannya untuk membantu mencetak gol dan memberi assist kepada rekan setimnya. Kerjasama Mata dengan penyerang andalan Chelsea seperti Diego Costa dan Eden Hazard bisa menjadi kunci keberhasilan The Blues meraih Liga Champions.
Nasib Mata memang sangat baik. Keputusannya pindah ke Chelsea pada 2014 terbukti tepat. Selain bisa kembali merasakan gelar juara, ia juga mendapatkan kesempatan untuk kembali bermain di kompetisi Eropa. Bersama Chelsea, Mata bisa mewujudkan ambisinya untuk kembali menjuarai Liga Champions. Tinggal selangkah lagi, Mata!
