Mata Happy At Chelsea

Juan Mata says that he is happy at Chelsea, and has dedicated his future to the club.

The season has not started well for the Spanish midfielder.

It began with rumours that new Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho does not rate him.

And when he was left out of the Blues’ midfield-heavy side that drew with Manchester United at Old Trafford, the speculation intensified that he could be sold during the transfer window.

But when the transfer window closed, he remained a Chelsea player, even if he is currently enduring his least comfortable spell at Stamford Bridge since his move there from Valencia two seasons ago.

Mata has been left out of the Spain squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers, which is a direct result of his sudden lack of regular game time at club level.

But even so, he insists that he is happy to stay at Chelsea.

"I think it's normal in every transfer window that there are lots of rumours but I'm happy here," he told Chelsea TV.

"It's been a very, very good two seasons for me here, maybe the best of my career, and what I want this season is the same.

"I'm looking forward to achieving as many trophies as we did the last two seasons and hopefully this is going to be a good season for us again.

"My only aim is to play here, grow as a player and do as good a season as the last two which were amazing for me."
