Mata reaffirms commitment to Chelsea

Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata has reaffirmed his commitment to the club.

The star insists he is very happy at Chelsea and is not looking to head home back to Spain.

Mata, in fact, said: "I love London and all of the famous buildings.

"It's too early to call it home but I am really happy and content. The English people are so friendly and that includes the players.

"From the first day, all the English players at the club, players such as Frank Lampard, John Terry, Ashley Cole and Ross Turnbull all made me feel really welcome.

"It's more relaxed in England than in Spain. People are more respectful and friendly without bothering you too much."
