Video: Manchester United’s Juan Mata Needs To Brush Up On His Football-Basket Skills

Juan Mata has become a bit of a YouTube sensation in his own right with his football challenges.

The Manchester United midfielder has gained himself over 50,000 subscribers to his official channel, where he posts short videos aimed at improving touch and technique.

In his latest instalment, the 27-year-old Spaniard attempts to kick the football into a basketball hoop on the half-volley.

Unfortunately, the Old Trafford playmaker could only muster a measly two out of eight before throwing the gauntlet down to his followers to give it a try.

You can check his latest challenge in the video below.

Mata has enjoyed a positive start to the season and was voted Player of the Month by United fans for September.

Louis van Gaal’s side return to Premier League action on Saturday following the international break.

They face a tricky trip to Goodison Park to take on Roberto Martinez’s in-form Everton side.

Mata will be hoping his shooting is a little more accurate against the Toffees than in his latest video.
