Chelsea ace Mata mixed emotions over Valencia win

Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata is disappointed Valencia are out of the Champions League at their expense.

The win was also bittersweet for Mata, who knew beforehand that victory would send his former team-mates out of the competition.

"The game was difficult for me," he said. "It was very strange because Valencia is my old team but, when you are on the pitch, you always want to win. So I'm happy with the 3-0."
