Jose Mourinho : I Never Sold Juan Mata

Jose Mourinho claims he never sold Juan Mata to Manchester United during his time as Chelsea manager.

Mata moved to Old Trafford for £37.1m in January 2014 and his hopes of featuring regularly under Mourinho looked slim following his appointment in May.

But, having played a starring role in Saturday’s victory over Leicester, Mourinho was keen to attribute the decision to sell Mata to his former employers.

“I didn’t sell him because it’s not my job to buy and sell players,” Mourinho said.

“My job is to coach and my job is to work on the pitch. My job is to advise my boards on the transfer policy. I don’t buy and I don’t sell and I never did.”​
