A Jordan Kitted Out PSG Arrive In Manchester In Style
Feb 14 2019
The Argentina global was only at Manchester United for one year before he refused to join them on a pre season tour in order to force a move to PSG.
Di Maria was the architect for PSG's victory, which will only further rile those who remember his failed United stint well.
Ashley Young earned his one year contract extension in the eyes of some Manchester United fans when he made a decision to shoulder barge Angel Di Maria into the metal boards a good five yards from the sidelines at Old Trafford.
It has been reported that a bottle of water was subsequently thrown Di Maria's way as well, and an item landed at the feet of United full-back Luke Shaw in the first half of the game, which the visitors won 2-0.
Former United player Di Maria was jeered by the home supporters right from the start of the match, having endured an underwhelming spell at the club in the 2014-15 season.
"It was hard from the opening minute but I knew this was going to happen", Di Maria told Cadena Cope radio of the atmosphere. There were problems with the coach at the time.
Di Maria stayed down for an extended period of time while players argued with each other and complained to the referee Daniele Orsato.
"But I've said it in the past and I reiterate it, I never spoke badly of the people here and of this club". He was a bit nervous and needed to be calmer in the first-half.
To rub salt into the United wounds, Di Maria was then on hand to provide the assist for the second goal of the game, firing the ball into the path of wonder kid Kylian Mbappe to slot home on the hour mark and put the game beyond reach for United. "If you tease him, it does not make him weaker", he said, Sky Sports reported.
