Juan Mata is not the most outgoing characters, and apart from his performances on the pitch, you rarely see his name hit the headlines.

However, the Spaniard made the headlines for two different reasons on Monday.

Earlier on in the day, Mata caused controversy when on an update on his blog, he referred to Man United's wonder-kid - Angel Gomes - as a 'former teammate'.

This initially caused uproar from fans, who deemed these words as a sign that Gomes was leaving the club.

However, Man United fans could breathe easily after it was later revealed that Mata's words had been lost in translation, and that Gomes was indeed staying at the club.

Pretty eventful stuff.

But after this debacle, Mata was the talk of Twitter once again when he posted a tweet featuring himself and David De Gea in training.

Meme's have become extremely popular in recent years, and Mata has shown he possesses a decent sense of humour with his own attempt at a meme.

Using a picture of De Gea looking at him affectionately in training, Mata captioned the post 'Find someone who looks at you the way @D_DeGea looks at me'.

You can view Mata's superb piece of banter here:

Absolutely quality.

The post blew up on Twitter, with it accumulating 7,000 re-tweets and 20,000 likes at the time of writing.

And fans could not get enough of Mata's post, with many commending the Spaniard for creating the meme.
