Manchester, - Manchester United midfielder and Spain star Juan Mata will miss the rest of the season after having groin surgery, the club confirmed today.
The club's manager Jose Mourinho confirmed that the club's second leading goal scorer underwent surgery last month with the hope of returning before the season concludes. Mourinho confirmed today that Mata will not return before late May, which means that he might even be doubtful for the Europa League final if Manchester United does reach that stage.
Defenders Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, are also injured and will not return until the middle of next month. The Premier League season ends on May 21. (QNA)
