Why Manchester United flopped this season - Mata

Man Utd Jose Mourinho

Phil Jones has stressed Manchester United are not scared of anyone and believes they have what it takes to challenge for Premier League glory next season.

Manchester United won the Europa League on Wednesday night after goals by Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan condemned Ajax to a 2-0 defeat, ensuring United qualify for the Champions League and being able to attract the best of players worldwide.

However, despite a ideal start in the league after three games, United struggled and despite putting together a 25-game unbeaten run after losing 4-0 at Chelsea, they ultimately ended sixth - 24 points off the champions.

The midweek Champions League matches will prove more hard in terms of the standard of opponent, but the Red Devils will be well equipped to rotate their side for those games, as they already have in this season's Europa League.

Juan Mata is looking forward to next season.

Mata was reunited with his former Chelsea manager Mourinho at United last summer.

But after making 42 appearances this season, including starts in the EFL Cup final and Europa League final, Mata says he is enjoying life at the club.

"It's been great. I've known him since our time together with the Under-18s and it's great to have him back and great to play alongside him again".

The 29-year-old, who made 47 appearances in all competitions this season, told hln.be: "When I feel that people trust me, I'm prepared to do everything. We have learnt a lot from the experience and that can only help us".

Marouane Fellaini has claimed he would be willing to break bones for Jose Mourinho as he plans to stay at Manchester United for the foreseeable future.
