Angel Di Maria has last laugh with PSG on Old Trafford return

Adjust Comment Print

And ahead of a big return to Old Trafford on Tuesday night, when Manchester United face off against PSG in the Round of 16 stages of the UEFA Champions League, Di Maria lifted the lid on his struggles in England, while speaking to radio station France Bleu (h/t The Sun).

Also, during an incident in the first half, Ashley Young shoved him off the pitch and he rolled into a metal barrier, but was able to continue after treatment. So when he assisted the French side's first goal of the night, a corner smashed in by Kimpembe on the edge of the six yard box after slipping away from Matic, he took the opportunity to return the favour.

The former Real Madrid man joined the Reds back in 2014 for £59.7 million under Louis van Gaal but failed to show anything like his best form before being sold to PSG at a loss just one season later.

During the game, Di Maria, who used to play for United, was noticeably booed by the home fans. This was the Di Maria £60m was supposed to buy.

Emotions were running high at Old Trafford, as Di Maria appeared to yell "f*** off" at the United fans as he celebrated PSG's goal.

Incidentally, as it would turn out, it was also their heaviest defeat at Old Trafford in European competition history. In the night's other last-16 game, teenager Nicolo Zaniolo scored twice to lead Roma to a 2-1 victory.

Di Maria, who had a beer bottle thrown in his direction in the second half, drank in the criticism from United fans, many of whom have not forgotten his disastrous spell at the club in the 2014/15 season.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter users did not pass up the opportunity to remind United fans of not only Di Maria's return, but what happened on the pitch.

The end of Di Maria and Van Gaal's relationship wasn't good.

Di Maria's manager, Thomas Tuchel, said after the game that the jeers from the home crowd simply made the player stronger. "Angel Di Maria is very competitive".

United's woe was intensified when Paul Pogba was sent off late on in the second half for a second yellow card following a lunge on Dani Alves. There are still 90 minutes left.
