Was Mourinho Wrong? Stats Show Mata Outperforming Oscar In The Past Year

share on:

In January 2014, Jose Mourinho opted to sell Juan Mata as the diminutive Spaniard did not fit into his style of play according to the Special one and Mata was sold to Manchester United for 37 million pounds. 15 months later, the stats are proving that Jose Mourinho was wrong as Mata has been more influential than his preferred play making option, Oscar.

Mata endured a difficult adjustment period at Manchester United under David Moyes and struggled to break into Louis van Gaal’s starting squad but despite all his struggles, Mata has been better than Oscar at everything over the past year according to Oulala.com.
