Chelsea star Mata mobbed by fans at Valencia airport

Chelsea star Juan Mata knows it will be emotional night for him in Valencia.

Mata was mobbed at Valencia airport having returned to the city so soon after his £24million move to Chelsea last month.

He said: "I was here for four years and it's going to be strange to go into a different dressing room.

"I don't know if it will be hard for me to play against my former team. We will find out."
