Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata believes the tide will turn at Old Trafford after the club suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat to rivals Liverpool yesterday.
The Spanish international – writing in his weekly blog – insisted that things will improve at the Theatre of Dreams.
David Moyes' side are now a long way off the Champions League places and could even miss out on Europa League qualification this campaign.
However, despite the Red Devils suffering yet another setback against Brendan Rodgers' side yesterday afternoon, Mata has remained positive about the future.
In his blog, Mata said: "The storm will pass and the sun will rise again. I have no doubt. Besides, no one said this would be easy, but this is football.
"It gives you fantastic moments but also very hard times you have to cope with, when you have to show pride and professionalism until the end. And when all this is gone I’m sure I will be a more mature footballer."
Despite the result, the Spaniard suggested that United went into the game in confident mood after a good week of training.
He continued by writing: “I have to say that our week at the training ground had been good and we were very hopeful ahead of this derby. However, the day of the match everything went bad. It was a tough defeat and I want to tell you that we will give everything we have in order to forget about this in the remaining games.”
Manchester United must now pick themselves up for their crunch Champions League clash with Olympiacos on Wednesday.
Moyes' side will be without Mata – who is cup tied – and will be looking to overturn a 2-0 deficit against the Greek outfit.
Manchester United fans will be desperate for the club to gain the victory with their season in danger of fizzling out.
