Manchester United’s Spanish midfielder Juan Mata is a dead ball specialist and it’s not surprising that the 27-year-old is in charge of penalties for the Old Trafford outfit.

Mata has been an immense resource for the Red Devils in recent weeks and was seen taking the penalty against Wolfsburg ahead of club captain Wayne Rooney. Manchester United were trailing behind against the Bundesliga outfit, when Mata stepped up to slot in the penalty to help his team get on level terms in the second round of the Champions League group stage fixtures.

Juan Mata has now uploaded a video of himself, taking free-kicks while being blindfolded at Manchester United’s training ground in Carrington. The Spaniard took four free-kicks and scored from all four of them. Although there was no goalkeeper to save the free-kicks, the 27-year-old had to bend his shots over a wall prop and find the target.


The former Chelsea FC man has asked his fans for more challenges that he could complete.

The Red Devils travel to North London to take on Arsenal FC in a crunch clash on Sunday.
