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

Share

As Paris Saint-Germain celebrated the goal, Di Maria turned aggressive and appeared to shout "F*** off P**" towards the United fans.

However, the United fans certainly weren't slating the right-back, with his shove arguably bringing the biggest cheer from the crowd in the opening 45 minutes.

Di Maria subsequently assisted Kylian Mbappe for PSG's second goal, and the game ended 2-0 in favor of the French side.

Di Maria was clearly in ecstasy after the goal and wasted no time in taunting the fans Old Trafford with abusive gestures during the celebrations. He showed no lack of desire in getting to the ball but it was noticeable that he was often being shadowed by Marquinhos whenever United were in possession, a clear sign of PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel attempting to shackle the World Cup victor. Di Maria was handed the famed No. 7 jersey at the club, but the pacey wide man never really managed to live up to the lofty expectations that were placed on him upon his arrival.

And during the second half, a beer bottle was thrown at him - which he picked up and pretended to drink from. Let us know in the comment box below. He had a hard time in the first half, the guy is very competitive. "If you tease him, it does not make him weaker", said his manager Thomas Tuchel, summing up his contribution perfectly, even noting Di Maria's weak start to the game as he won just one of his nine duels.

"But thanks to God, I was able to come to PSG and be myself again", the former Real Madrid superstar said, as quoted by The Sun.

Some argued that Pogba deserved a straight red for the tackle, while others suggested that Ashley Young was lucky to stay on the pitch after colliding with Angel di Maria in the first half. "In the end he did well".
