Mata: Mourinho can help me become a better player
Juan Mata was Chelsea’s best player in the last two seasons, but have been rather peripheral under Mourinho this season.
Speaking to the Sun, Mata said: “I will play wherever he demands. I am young and can still improve. I want to do the same as I did in the last two seasons.
“I have to improve defensively, too. Every single player has to. To be the perfect player is very difficult but I have tried throughout my career to improve a lot.
“I think Jose can help me. Every manager can try to improve their players. It’s his job to bring the best out of his players.
“Last season was the best in my career, but I could still have done better.
“Jose’s a manager who analyses everything, not just in our team. He’s a manager who likes intensity, who likes pressure. We have eight months to go to the World Cup and I believe in myself more than ever.”
