Mata frustrated by defeats


Juan Mata admits the only way for Manchester United to start repaying their fans is by producing results on the pitch.

It proved to be a difficult week for United as they were knocked out of the Champions League following their 3-2 defeat to Wolfsburg before suffering a 2-1 loss at Bournemouth in the Premier League.

The Reds found themselves behind as early as the third minute when Junior Stanislas scored direct from a corner-kick only for Marouane Fellaini to equalise. They pressed for a winner but were caught out as Joshua King struck for the Cherries in the second half.

"When we were coming back from Bournemouth all I could think about was the frustration of the defeat, the disappointment of those who came with us, those who watched the game on TV, those who were with us in Germany... and the only thing to turn that anger into happiness is through good results, not words," Mata wrote on his weekly blog.

"I know that my words will not comfort you very much, but I must tell you that in these moments, the support you give even after such disappointments makes this club special. You make this club special.

"Better days will come, I'm sure of that, and we will start Monday in better spirits."
