Juan Mata believes that Manchester United signed the right type of players in the summer, which is why they have settled into the club so quickly.
United new boys Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire have been among the star performers in the Reds’ opening two Premier League fixtures, which have yielded four points with just one goal conceded.
Daniel James also arrived from Swansea, as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sought to sign young, British players who would integrate into the squad.
Mata, meanwhile, is taking on more of a leadership role as one of the senior figures in the United squad and told the Telegraph about his belief in the squad’s potential.
“We have a young squad, the last starting XIs were the youngest (in the Premier League),” said Mata.
“It tells you that if the present is OK then the future can be better and that you are building a solid foundation. Marcus Rashford is 21 and he’s already played many games and scored many goals. The experience they have at that age and playing for a club like this is priceless and another thing that is needed is us, is experience, is older players to get the balance.
“I think Ole knows that. You can have many young players but you also need experience especially when a difficult moment come.
“I also feel we have made good signings. The players who have come are good people, hungry, young but also experienced – Harry and Aaron have played many games – and they have adapted very quickly.”
