"The night falls in Manchester, and the photo-shoot is almost coming to an end. It has been many more hours than we planned, and the footballer has posed with patience and professionalism. Mata must now put a circumspect face. "A little more serious, please," we asked him. And he tries, but he just can’t do it. We tell him to think of something bad, but it seems he’s "too much a nice guy" to do it. In fact, he even seems to be enjoying all this… In the end, we’re desperate at the impossibility of drawing some "evilness" of his features, so we opted for the last card he left for us to play: "Think about Mourinho!!" A moment of silence and… he breaks into a huge laugher. "Cabrones, don’t do this to me, Joder.""
