Mata: Madrid match will be special

Juan Mata has admitted it will be 'special' when he lines up against Real Madrid on Wednesday evening.

The playmaker left Santiago Bernabeu as a youngster to sign for Valencia, before joining Chelsea in 2011.

And the Spain international has conceded that the game in Miami will be a great occasion for him personally.

“It will be a very special game for me,” he told reporters. “Real Madrid were very important in my career.

“I hope the fans in Miami will enjoy the game.

“I'm sure it will be exciting and that we will lift the trophy.”
