“I really value his honesty,” Mata said.
“When someone does something in training that he really likes, he goes over to hug and kiss them — he really does it.
“Or he will say in front of everyone, ‘You are the best in training, I'm really proud of how you played,’ to set a a good example to others.
“Van Gaal is how you see him in the press conferences, he's like that with us too.
"He's honest and straight-forward. He believes in his style of training and way of preparing for games. He's won trophies everywhere he's been and hopefully this season now we know him better we'll win something too.”
