Marta Garcia Biography – Marta Garcia Wiki
Marta Garcia is the mother of Juan Mata, a Spanish professional footballer and founder of the Common Goal charity. The Manchester United midfielder was very close to his mother. In 2019, Juan Mata talked to Manchester United about his relationship with his mother. He said:
“My mother has always been more worried about my physical wellbeing during a match than the result. That’s why, even now, I always call her when I’m on the coach on the way to the stadium. Always.
“It’s a ritual that we both enjoy, and which is also an extra source of motivation for me. Be careful. Enjoy, shoot . . . and try not to get hurt,” are always her words. Heaven knows how she would cope if I were, say, a free skier. But for all that she gets rather nervous during games, she still doesn’t miss a single one. She’s even gone so far as to send me text messages during a game.
“Whenever I had a knock, or I looked slightly injured during a game, the first message on my phone is hers. ‘Are you OK? Tell me something when you can.
“Sometimes, she even goes so far as to give me football ‘lessons’ (you understand now why her mother does the same, right?). ‘You should’ve shot there. You should’ve crossed it.
“I guess it’s all part of being a mother, and we only have one. My mother is undoubtedly a key figure in my life. I will always do everything that’s in my hands to make her happy. She deserves it more than anyone else.”
Juan Mata’s mother, Marta Garcia, also spoke of her relationship with her son in 2018, saying: “Juan does not like to be alone and for that reason we try to be with him as much as we can. He’s a very happy boy, and every time I see him I send him back with a suitcase full of things.”
