American channel NBC calls Juan Mata ‘Marijuana Mata’ during Manchester United draw v Tottenham

Juan MataAmerican broadcaster NBC made a pretty big gaffe during their coverage of Manchester United’s match against Tottenham – after subtitles referred to Juan Mata as ‘Marijuana Mata’.

An eagle-eyed fan spotted the mistake during the second half of the Premier League clash on Sunday after the channel’s subtitle department tried to explain how well the Spaniard was playing at White Hart Lane.

Unfortunately for NBC, whoever was in charge of writing the subtitles ended up adding a few more letters to the midfielder’s first name Juan – and called him ‘Marijuana Mata’ instead.
