Manchester United player-coach Ryan Giggs says the squad is excited as the fans over Juan Mata's arrival from Chelsea.

Results may still be lacking - Saturday's loss at Stoke means United are seven points behind fourth position - but a marquee signing has done much to boost morale.

"The players are just like the fans," Giggs said. "When they see a quality player come through the door, it gives them that excitement and you feel it around training. It gives everybody a lift.

"We've played against him for the last three years and know the quality he has got. He's fitted in straight away and speaks really good English - better English than most of the lads!"
