    Juan Mata expects Premier League games to be played abroad

    Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata thinks that Premier League matches will be played abroad “sooner rather than later”.

    Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has actually revealed his belief that Premier League games will start being played abroad “sooner rather than later”.

    Talks relating to a ’39 th game’ have actually happened on and off for a variety of years now, although the concept is currently shelved and does not look most likely to take place in the foreseeable future.

    Nevertheless, Mata would not be shocked if the Premier League followed the lead of the likes of the NFL and NBA by hosting matches outside of England.

    “I think this is something that might happen eventually. We’ve seen it in different sports, we’ve seen it with some sports played abroad and they are still in competitions,” Mata informed MUTV.

    ” I do not understand if it will take place or not however, due to the fact that of the way football appears to be going, it may take place quicker instead of later on. It will be great for our fans around the world, to be truthful. It will be great to see us play live, betting competitive points.

    “It will be difficult to organise to be honest, and also a little bit unfair for the people that live in the UK who go to every single game. So there’s a little bit of a discussion there to speak deeper about it, but I think that it will happen in football.”

    Mata has actually made 31 appearances for United throughout all competitions this season, scoring 3 goals and developing 5 more.
