Juan Mata: Supporters make us proud

In his final blog entry for 2014/15, midfielder Juan Mata covers a range of season-finale topics and thanks Manchester United fans for their support during a campaign of mixed results...Hi everyone, This is my last blog entry of the season and I say goodbye until the next one. I hope you have enjoyed this weekly encounter as much as I have. You know, in the good times… and in the bad ones too. This is the end of a season with mixed feelings. In some stages we played very good football, being very competitive especially against our main rivals, and we enjoyed some important wins; on the other hand, there were periods when we were not consistent enough to fight for the title, or suffered some painful defeats. In general terms, we reached the main goal of the club this season: to have the chance to play the Champions League (we still have to earn it in the play-off round), but this team has to fight for trophies, and we will put all our efforts into that after the summer. That’s what you deserve.We finished the season with a draw at Hull that also meant the local team was relegated. It’s not nice to experience something like that on-site, unfortunately this is not the first time I have seen it. As I said, we approached this game in the most professional way, trying to win. At the end, our draw, plus Newcastle’s victory, left Hull in the relegation zone. I send my support to their fans - we hope to see you back in the Premier League soon. By the way, Jonás Gutiérrez's goal for Newcastle tells us a lot about life and the way to overcome the real problems.In our game, my friend Víctor Valdés appeared in United’s starting XI for the first time. It was a great experience for him and also a reward for his good job at the training ground every week. On top of that, he completed a great game with a few big saves.From a personal point of view, according to the stats I have played 2,420 minutes, scoring 10 goals and giving 4 assists. They are good numbers but, as always, I’ll try to get better year after year ;-). I hope to keep contributing goals and assists to achieve big things with the team.Being the last week of the Premier League, we have seen a few farewells and some of them very significant. Like Steven Gerrard’s, for instance. I mentioned him a week ago for his relevance and contribution to the history of football. The same thing can be said, of course, about Frank Lampard, one of the best team-mates I have ever had and someone I have learnt a lot from. A true legend in both English and world football. I wish him all the best for his new stage in the United States and I thank him for his treatment to me at all times. And I don’t forget another great player and former team-mate, Didier Drogba, one of the best strikers the Premier League has ever seen and a phenomenal guy in every sense. With so many legends leaving, a good part of football’s history in
