Mata, from the Champions to the sky: the tribute to his yayita

He dedicated the 1-0 to Sevilla: "He will be flying away, without wings, because whoever has a whole sky won, does not need anything else, it's for you, my yayita".

The morning of Sunday, April 21, was special for Jaime Mata. At 2:00 pm in the Coliseum, he and Getafe had the opportunity to continue holding the LaLiga revelation team poster and to knock down the almighty Sevilla in their duel for the fourth place in the competition, the last one that gives access to the Champions. If they tell Jaime Mata 10 years ago, the Tricantino would think that he would be the victim of a joke. But the dream is a reality that has led him to the National Team and be the second national top scorer with 14 goals, matched with De Tomás, behind Aspas (16), and ahead of Molina (13), Borja Iglesias ( 13), Williams (12), Sarabia (12), Roger (12) and Oyarzabal (12). And in that dream towards the Champions, Mata has an exceptional spectator in heaven. His 'yayita', to which he dedicated the penalty he transformed in the 35th minute of the game and was 1-0 against Sevilla. From the Champions, to the sky and with a special memory for his grandmother in the field and through Twitter hours later.

His good numbers, 21 goals in 82 games, aroused the interest of several clubs in the silver category, but the one that convinced him most was Valladolid, also because of the proximity to his house.

The first season was difficult because with Paco Herrera He played more heeled to the band, but in the second with Luis César Sampedro and Sergio González exploded. 35 goals in 45 official matches, top scorer of Second and promotion to Primera. However, his future did not go through the Pucelano. The Getafe opportunity arrived.
