Manchester United playmaker Juan Mata has congratulated former club Chelsea after Jose Mourinho's side secured the Premier League title yesterday afternoon.
Writing in his blog, the ex-Blues man, who left Stamford Bridge in January of last year, has insisted, however, that he hopes to be congratulated on title success next year.
United, of course, have failed to really threaten Chelsea throughout the course of the campaign, with the Blues well out in front of their rivals.
Mata wants the title
Mata, though, clearly thinks his teammates can win the title next season, as he stated: "Back to football, Chelsea are officially the Premier League champions.
"I had congratulated my former team-mates already and I do it again: you have been the most consistent team this season. I hope the congratulations are to us the next year ;-)."
Improvement is needed
There's no doubt about it, despite recent troubles, everyone at United will be expecting the club to deliver a strong challenge for the Premier League title next season.
Ultimately, the club's faithful will be hoping to se further improvements to the squad this summer, with it seemingly likely that the hierarchy will splash the cash once again.
United, though, will certainly be playing catch up on Jose Mourinho and Co. in west London, who appear to be a long way in front of the rest right now. With an incredibly strong team united, the Blues will no doubt start as favourites to make it back-to-back league titles next term.
