PSG's Di Maria expected United fans' abuse accused of swearing in reply

  • Angel di Maria takes big swipe at Man Utd- ‘Thank God I came to PSG

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 was booed constantly by United fans and had bottles thrown at him, but the winger ultimately had the last laugh. PSG struggled to bring Kylian Mbappe into the game, without the injured Edinson Cavani stretching United's defence, and Neymar being Neymar.

A beer bottle was thrown onto the pitch near Di Maria, but the stunt didn't seem to affect him. With the ball rolling out for a throw-in, Ashley Young barged into his back, sending him flying into the hoardings via the steep slope that frames Old Trafford's pitch. The United man did manage to get away from the Brazilian midway through the first half and impressively breezed past PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe on the right touchline - but his cross was too near to veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

Former Red Devil Di Maria wasn't exactly given the warmest reception upon his return to Old Trafford, given his thoroughly underwhelming spell at the club during the 2014/15 season.

Then came the moment the Argentine had been waiting for.

Toro Rosso look for improvement with new line-up
Joy Egginton, deputy technical director of Toro Rosso, told SpeedWeek how the team is working in full cooperation with Red Bull. The team have a new driver line-up with the return of Russian Daniil Kvyat and a debut for UK-born Thai Alexander Albon .


"It was hard from the opening minute but I knew this was going to happen", Di Maria told Cadena Cope radio of the atmosphere.

Paris Saint-Germain's head coach Thomas Tuchel said of the shove: "There was no need to push Di Maria into the fans but I don't think it was on goal".

In what can be deemed as one of the fixtures of the round, PSG will be hoping to fend off a spirited United outfit that looked to have shrugged off their difficulties endured under former manager Jose Mourinho.

Di Maria was the architect for PSG's victory, which will only further rile those who remember his failed United stint well. While he did showcase glimpses of his vast quality, Di Maria wasn't able to do it on a consistent basis.
