Given he’s been out injured for the last few weeks after undergoing groin surgery, Mata could’ve probably done with having his spirits lifted a touch and thankfully Young and Lingard were on hand to do just that.
In the clip below, from United sponsors Chevrolet’s ‘Everything But Football Football Show’, Mata meets a United supporter who is actually an actor, who has come armed with his own artwork of Mata in various different settings:

It’s not the cleverest or most elaborate prank, but seeing the Spanish international dressed up as a magician as he randomly cuts his grass definitely made us giggle a little bit, as well as Mata.
Of course, when there’s a prank going down, it makes complete sense that Lingard would be involved somewhere along the way.
Well done, lads – oh, and nice drawings too!
