Juan Mata out for silverware

Juan MataChelsea winger Juan Mata has urged his teammates to secure a top-four finish as well as a trophy as the term draws to an end.

The Stamford Bridge side have had a difficult season with the departure of Roberto Di Matteo early on and the appointment of Rafael Benitez who is still trying to win fans over.

But the Spain international is confident that they can still come out of the campaign with a positive outlook if they can claim a Champions League spot and clinch either the FA Cup or the Europa League.

The former Valencia man feels that the players have done well all season to try and ignore the events off the field, but it will count for nothing if they don’t manage to finish strongly.

Mata said: “Each club has their own way to behave with managers but at the end what counts is to win. And in recent years Chelsea has won such a lot of trophies.

“Now the aim is to finish in the top four and win two trophies.

“I’m sure we will finish in the top four. And we are still in the Europa League and the FA Cup and we can win them both.”
