Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has said he does not take any pleasure in seeing Jose Mourinho struggle.
Having scooped two Player of the Year awards at Chelsea, the Spanish midfielder was turfed out of Stamford Bridge seven months after the Portuguese's return.
Mata is enjoying life at Old Trafford and claimed he is not the kind of person to take pleasure from other people's misfortune.

In an exclusive interview with Goal.com, the Spaniard said: "No, I'm not that kind of person. I'm a person who doesn't think bad about other people or feel happy when other people don't get results.
"I'm just happy because of what I'm living because my life is good, I'm happy where I am and nothing else I don't like to think about others losing or not performing well. No, no - I'm not that kind of person.
"I always said I was very grateful for Chelsea. I spent an amazing time of my career there, we won a lot of trophies, and I think I became a better player. I have great friends in the club and I always wish the best for them."
Mourinho's decision to sell Mata to Manchester United split opinion among Chelsea fans. His judgement was not questioned as the Blues won the Premier League the following season.
However, the west London club are having a disastrous campaign while the Spain international is in inspired form for the Red Devils.
His creative influence could definitely help arrest Chelsea's poor start, although, under Mourinho his freedom would most definitely be stunted.
Not like Manchester United will be too upset; Mata has scored four goals and assisted another three in helping the Old Trafford club to fourth in the table.
