Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is adamant that he has never had any problems with Jose Mourinho.
Mata fell out of favour at Chelsea while Mourinho was in charge before moving to Old Trafford in 2014, although the Portuguese recently claimed he had no desire to sell the playmaker.
And therefore there were questions over whether Mata would still have a future at United following the appointment of Mourinho ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.
But Mata, 28, has since refuted claims that he and Mourinho ever fell out at Chelsea.
“My relationship with Mourinho has never been bad,” Mata said.
“Many lies were told about me and Mourinho when he arrived at the club this summer.
“It bothered me that every day I had to read and listen to rumours that were not true. With him I am fine.
“You read a lot of comments on Facebook and Twitter but they just make you laugh.”
