What Angel Di Maria Shouted At Manchester United Fans After Assisting PSG Opener

What Angel Di Maria Shouted At Manchester United Fans After Assisting PSG Opener

Angel Di Maria received a volatile reception on his return to Old Trafford but the Argentine rose above it to produce two assists in the PSG's 2-0 win.

The former Real Madrid man put the ball on a plate for Presnel Kimpembe to score the opener from a corner early in the second half and he really enjoyed doing so.

Di Maria was caught on camera hurling some expletives at the home supporters as he celebrated the Ligue One side going 1-0 up.

Having been booed, as well as being shoved into the stands by Ashley Young and later having bottles thrown at him, it was clear to see that what United fans think of Di Maria, a then club-record signing for £59.7 million in 2014.

However, it was the former United No.7 who had the last laugh. He also set up PSG's second when his perfectly-weighted cross was tapped home by Kylian Mbappe.

Speaking prior to the big Champions League game between the two sides, teammate Julian Draxler explained he'd spoken to Di Maria about his time at Old Trafford, saying:

"I was asking him some questions about Manchester United. I won't tell you what he said but he will be ready for tomorrow.

"He's a big player. He has a lot of respect for the club (United), there's nothing terrible in what he said but it was between me and him, so I won't tell you right now.

"He's in good form, we'll need him tomorrow, especially without Cavani and Neymar, hopefully he'll have a great performance tomorrow."
