London, July 21 : Spanish midfielder Juan Mata has his eyes set on the Olympic gold as he looks to add another medal to his kitty this season.
Mata has already won Champions League and the FA Cup medals with Chelsea along
with the Euro Cup medal with Spain.
Mata will step out for his 59th outing of the campaign when Spain kicks off against Japan
in Glasgow next Thursday.
"We''re not just looking for a magic moment. We want to win gold to show there is no
doubt that Spain is the best soccer nation in the world. I''m dreaming of a gold medal to
complete my incredible first season in England," The Sun quoted Mata, as saying.
"I never believed that I could win so many titles in just a few months. I am very happy.
There has been no pressure from Chelsea about playing at the Olympics," he added.
"I spoke with them some months ago about playing at the Euros and then the Games and
I don''t believe the extra effort will be a negative for the start of the Premier League season.
It won''t be a problem. It''s going be very tense but we must challenge for the title," he said.
