It has been reported that Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is amazed by the passion of fans around the world.
United are preparing to kickoff their preseason in the US.
The Spanish international playmaker has been taken aback by just how many fans United have around the world. Mata told the club’s official website: “It was unbelievable to see how many supporters we have in the United States and even when we were playing teams like Real Madrid, we had more supporters than them. It’s amazing to feel fans in the States are with us.
“I think it’s very nice to know that the American fans are trying to learn more about the history of the club. We love them and thank them a lot because we can feel their support even from overseas and hopefully we can see a lot of them this summer.
“I think what’s surprised me most about the club is to feel that wherever you go, even when you go on holiday to a quiet place, you always find Man United supporters. It’s something that you do not expect in some countries, yet we have them all around the world.”
