Mata ‘still hungry’ after reaching 50 goal 50 assist milestone

Manchester United’s Juan Mata says he is ‘hungry for more’ after reaching 50 Premier League goals in his side’s 4-1 win over Fulham on Saturday.

Mata’s landmark goal means he is just the sixth Spaniard to reach the milestone in the Premier League, whilst just the third behind Cesc Fabregas and David Silva to have registered both 50 goals and 50 assists.

“It’s not bad,” Mata told MUTV.

“50 and 50.

“When I came to the Premier League a few years ago I was very excited and very motivated about my period in the Premier League and I am enjoying it so much.

“I am lucky to have been able to score and assist that many goals, but I am still hungry for more: I want more assists, more goals, more enjoyment in the pitch, so hopefully I can do (so).”

Next up for United is a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool, where Mata scored arguably his most famous Manchester United goal in 2015.
