Manchester United Players, Legends And More Get Into The Christmas Spirit

Fellow club legend Cristiano Ronaldo posted his alongside a tour of his magnificent abode.

Juan Mata’s latest blog was particularly impassioned considering the side’s six game winless streak, but the fan favourite is adamant that the Red Devils will come good in the end.

He wrote: “No matter how tough the situation can be, I’m not even thinking about giving up.”

“I believe that’s the only way to get out of this bad streak: keep working hard and sooner or later we will get the results that we want. It’s time to show our strength as a group and make the most of all these fixtures in the Christmas period so we can start a good run of results.”

“We are really disappointed for not giving you what you deserve, because your support is amazing and unconditional, but I’m sure that we will turn this situation around.”

Merry Christmas!! Feliz Navidad a tod@s!!
