Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata admits he’s no fan of fish and chips!
In an interview with Kicca where he discusses his eating habits, he makes the admission.
“When I first arrived in England I didn’t have very high expectations about English food because everyone told me that it’s not so good, or whatever,” said Mata.
“English people and English food is very English, they feel very proud of their food and routines.
“On Sundays I like to try Sunday roast and I really like pie – beef pie. The one thing I didn’t like that is very famous is the fish and chips. It’s very famous but it’s a bit oily.
“I like to go to English countryside pubs where they have home-made food and I really enjoy it – so I cannot complain about English food. And that’s not a fake answer, it’s a real one!”
