Mata says he can handle Chelsea managerial changes

Juan Mata says he can handle the constant changes at Chelsea.

Mata is playing under his third manager since moving to Chelsea almost 18 months ago.

"You have to adapt," he told the Telegraph.

"You can't complain about that because as a player you have to play at your best no matter who the manager is because you play for the club.

"Maybe my first year in Valencia helped me because I had four managers, three presidents, three chairman, so it was a big curve for me to learn how professional football works and how professionals perform and how you have to adapt yourself to changes, however unexpected."
