Melitta, official coffee partner of Manchester United, gives fans the chance of an unforgettable trip when they share their favourite moment

Some of us just aren’t morning people.

But if that’s you, then don’t worry, you’re in good company, as we found out when we sat down with Manchester United stars, who lifted the lid on some of their illustrious Old Trafford team-mates.

“Juan [Mata], in the morning, could be better,” admitted Ander Herrera.

“But I know him, so from 12:01pm he is a different person and you can talk to him.”

Mata agrees with his compatriot. “It’s just that my body needs a few hours to wake up… I am better after 3pm,” he concedes.

But he’s not the only one. “I am not a morning person at all,” says Jesse Lingard. “I need my own time. I like to go on my phone.”

The Man Utd stars joined Goal in conjunction with the club’s official coffee partner, Melitta, who are offering fans the chance to win an unforgettable trip to Manchester by recalling their magic Manchester United moment.
