Man Utd midfielder Mata: Moyes gives me confidence

Juan Mata is happy playing for Manchester United boss David Moyes.

Mata says Moyes has made him feel 'important' since joining the club in January.

"He made me feel important and I think that's fundamental when you arrive at such a big club that has made a huge investment in you," he said.

"It's nice when the manager tells you "Juan, you're important to the team and we need you on the ball as much as possible" and that's what I try to do.

"My relationship with him is good, friendly and from the off, he seemed to me to be a great person."
