share on:

If we asked you who the best free kick taker ever in Manchester United, not even the Premier league was, you would most likely say Cristiano Ronaldo or most probably, David Beckham. Errrrr…You’ll be wrong, Juan Mata is actually better than both of them.

ITV sports released stats today on the best free kick taker ever in the premiership and with a conversion rate of 17.9 percent, Mata ranked highest. David Beckham came in fourth, and Ronaldo, well he wasn’t even on the list. Mata has been finding the back of the net from dead balls or Chelsea and Manchester United and he was ahead of former teammate, Ryan Giggs who was in 8th and Henry in 6th, Sebastian Larsson came in second with a conversion rate of 12.2 and with a conversion rate of 6.6 percent, Leighton Baines came in 9th.
