Video: Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata shows off brilliant skill

Manchester United 3

Juan Mata is better at playing football blindfolded than we can unblindfolded!

Last week, Manchester United ace and brilliant beard owner Juan Mata showed us how to control the ball like a boss? Well, the Spaniard is back and this time he's showing off his superhuman ability, which has left us all absolutely stunned.

So what is his superpower? Well, it turns out he could give Daredevil a run for his money after showing off his brilliant skills while blindfolded. 

Yep, Mata has released a video of him taking some blindfolded free-kicks, and it really is outstanding. The 27-year-old sets up a wall, then blindfolds himself before perfectly thumping some really well placed free-kicks in from about 25 yards out.

While mere mortals like us would probably fall flat on our backsides or send the ball anywhere but near the goal, Mata was able to place all four of his free-kicks, with some flying into the top corner.

And with Manchester United facing Arsenal on Sunday and the prospect of David Ospina being in goal, we'd fancy Mata scoring a blindfolded free-kick against the Colombian with ease.
