Juan Mata works extra
The Spanish international could not make the preseason with the Turkish club, which is why he has not been able to be with the team in the last two games.
Mata is training extra during the break to have a form that can show his best version at Florya Metin Oktay, which is Galatasaray’s facility.
The midfielder will be on the list for the match against Adana Demirspor. Mata said that he is very happy with what he has seen: the facilities, the fans and the city. He is quite excited and wants to give one hundred percent on the pitch.
If Mata plays 25 official matches in all competitions, his contract will be automatically extended. The veteran player earns 1.8 million net a year.
