  • [11] Paul Scholes on Juan Mata needing to play in his proper Number 10 position

    “He’s a classic number ten off the front. He played that position against West Ham and did quite well but he’s not really hit the ground running as much as you’d expect. For £37m you want goals. In his defence he has played out of position quite a bit, out wide. I played on the left hand side quite a few times and quite enjoyed it because you can come inside and the right-back didn’t have to pick you up, the midfield player didn’t know where you were and the centre half, does he come or not. It was a decent position to get yourself in the box and score goals. But on the other hand, when the other team had the ball you’re up and down all day. That just wasn’t my game and I don’t think it’s Juan Mata‘s game either.”
