We are coming into a week that represents the start of the final stretch of the season. We have less than two months to finish the campaign in the best possible shape, and we are looking forward to getting back in action against Watford this upcoming Saturday at Old Trafford. It will be our final game in March, and there are plenty of good matches to come in April which I will talk about next week.
Q：We feel you are not playing a match，you are just dancing and dancing with the cue ball around you.（大家认为你们完全不是在打比赛，更疑似在舞蹈）
接下去的七日是本赛季收尾阶段的开端。假设以最精美的成就停止这个赛季，距离今后也不到多个月了，而小编辈都愿目的在于下周天主场对战Watford Football Club的较量中重装上阵。那将是六月份的末段一场交锋，到了四月份会有一大堆比赛等着大家，上周加以。
J：Hahaha，a good condition，a good crowed，we enjoy the match.（哈哈，球台蒙受很好，观者也给力，大家立马很享受）
In terms of training sessions, this week has been a very positive one for me. I have made the most of the chance to get in top shape after making my return I the FA Cup not long ago. I am feeling good and I am looking forward to doing whatever I can to help the team as much as possible.
Q：Why are you so happy during the match？You are always smiling because you see me？（你竞技前为什么如此欢愉一向在笑？是因为见到了自个儿？）
J：Of course，hahaha！（开玩笑）We were lucky，we controlled the match，so we feel very good.（当然了！哈哈。我们很幸运，平素掌握控制着竞赛，所以我们备感特别不错。）
Last week many of you reminded me that it had been four years since that win at Anfield where I was lucky enough to score twice. Time has passed, but without doubt I can say that it was one of the happiest moments of my career. Everything went well that day… passes, touches, the first goal and then the second… our fans were in the corner closest to it where they could celebrate. One decides to become a football player for moments like that, the most special thing is to see the effect that it has on so many people, it gives a meaning to everything. It was an unforgettable day.
After the week of internationals, I want to congratulate the Spanish national team for starting off their European qualification campaign with a win. It was tougher than deserved, and it was played in a style that I love. Jaime Mata made his debut, who I’m not related to (as far as I know!), but who I was happy to see play after a career that has been full of dedicated and patience. The same goes for Sergio Canales, who has had to overcome a number of serious injuries. He is a role model and a great player. He deserves it.
在国家队比赛周后，笔者要祝贺西班牙王国（The Kingdom of Spain）队得到欧小组赛的开门红。本场交锋以自己爱好的主意实行的，球队本应获得更轻便局地。海梅-马塔上演了国家队首秀，他和本人可没什么关联啊！但能观看她在一段静心并耐心的专门的工作生涯后表示国家队出场，笔者特别快乐。对于Cergy奥-Canales以来也一样，他是一超范例球员，经历过一多级的悲凉伤病，也配得上未来的完结。
It is also worth mentioning England’s start. On top of the plenty of goals they scored, they are building something good. We already saw a lot of positives at the World Cup under Southgate, and it is clear that with some of the new generation they are forming a very competitive team. The atmosphere with regarding to the national team is very optimistic here, I have noticed a change and this confidence will help the team. From the outside looking in, I feel that the manager has plenty to do with the direction things have gone in.
英格兰队的首场交锋也值得说。他们进球最多，建构了不易的种类。在FIFA World Cup上大家曾经看见了索斯盖特手下，那支球队的不计其数能动面，何况很分明，三个人年轻一代球员正在营造一支有竞争力的武装力量。他们队里的空气也是主动的，我曾经关心到了那些变化，並且那份自信会援助到他们。从面生人的角度来讲，那支球队的大方向一度分明，而主教练还应该有为数不菲的专门的学业要去做。
Regarding Spain once more, I would like to share my congratulations and well wishes with Valencia CF once again, as well as all of the club’s fans after their centenary celebration. I wasn’t able to help out with the game this weekend, but I want to give my thanks for the invitation and reiterate that the feeling of care is mutual. I saw the photos of the game, where I saw plenty of legends and former teammates, and it had to have been a fantastic day. I wish you all the best! Amunt!
Hugs, and I hope you all have a good week,
P.S.: Louis van Gaal announced his retirement recently. I wish him the best in the next chapter in his life and I would like to thank him for the time that we spent together (including that game at Anfield)… He was an amazing coach, a sensitive and honest person despite looking tough on the outside, a man with principles and a great person. Thank you, Louis, I wish you all the best.
