Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has insisted that he has no intention of hanging up his boots any time soon and believes that his experience can help him provide a vital insight to the club's younger players.
The 31-year-old's contract with United expires next summer, but they do have the option to extend that by a further 12 months and Mata suggested that his experience can be an asset to Solskjaer.
"I would enjoy it more to be 20 years old. I think it's good because it makes you see football in a different way, with more perspective and, of course, with more experience," Mata told the Official Manchester United Podcast.
"I feel young, honestly, in my body and in my mind. But obviously I've been playing in a club, and in English football and professionally for 12, 13 years now. So that gives me experience, especially in difficult situations, to behave in a certain way or give advice to the young players.
"I think Ole values that also. Me as a player, what I can give on the pitch, but also that I will try my best off the pitch for the new players that come, like right now Bruno [Fernandes] and Odion [Ighalo] and for the youngsters that come through the academy.
"You come as a youngster from the academy, like Marcus Rashford came in the beginning. He was shy and now he's more mature. I think it's important to have this balance in a team where you have the energy and enthusiasm of the youngsters and the experience and the knowledge of the experienced ones, not the older ones."
Mata joined United from Chelsea in 2014 and has since made 249 appearances for the club, directly contributing to 90 goals.
