Video: Man Utd’s Jesse Lingard and Ashley Young Prank Unsuspecting Juan Mata

Juan Mata has fallen victim to a pretty funny prank by his Manchester United team-mates Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard, with one ‘fan’ getting in on the act too.

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!
