Mata Agrees One-year Man United Contract Extension

Manchester City player, Raheem Sterling, has revealed what Juan Mata told him during City’s 3-1 victory over United last month, he stated that the Man U man asked him to ‘show a little respect’.

Sterling got Red Devil’s players angry in the closing stages of the game at Etihad Stadium by doing several step-overs with the ball to run down the clock.

After the final whistle, City manager Pep Guardiola was also angry with Sterling’s antics and confronted him on the pitch.

He [Guardiola] doesn’t want us to disrespect anyone. I was surprised,” Sterling told The Times.

I was keeping the ball in the corner. I can understand if we had lost the ball, and they’d gone down the other end, but I am trying to waste time, attract a foul.

“I wasn’t trying to take the mickey out of them that they have lost.

“That’s not my thing. Juan Mata just said, ‘Show a little bit of respect.’

“I wasn’t trying to disrespect them. I wouldn’t.

“I was just trying to keep the ball in the corner and entertain the fans at the same time.
