LvG👔 has admitted that Juan Mata⭐ ‘damaged’ his side’s chances of victory in Sunday’s defeat😔 to West Brom before suggesting that the referee should have taken Mata's personality into account. The former Chelsea🔵 midfielder was given his marching orders👉🏻 after just 26 minutes at The Hawthorns for 2⃣ yellow cards, one for preventing a quick free-kick, and the second for a challenge💪🏻 on Darren Fletcher. It was Mata's first red♦ card of his professional career⚽. But Van Gaal👔 was keen to stress that the Spaniard has never intentionally😔 hurt an opponent. “The first yellow card I think was stupid. But the second, you know you already have one yellow card, you have to take into account. You damage the benefit of the team” said Van Gaal.
