Di Maria reveals his problems at United ahead of Champions league clash
Angel di Maria has revealed the difficulties he faced during his time at Manchester United of his Paris Saint-Germain side’s Champions League encounter with them.
United signed the forward in August 2014 for £59.7m, a British record transfer fee at the time.
Louis van Gaal, who signed the Argentine as Red Devils manager, described him as ‘world class’
Ahead of the last-16 first-leg tie the 30-year-old spoke to radio station France Bleu about his spell in Manchester.
He said: ‘I only stayed one year. It wasn’t the best period of my career, or they didn’t let me have my best time there.
‘There were problems with the coach at the time. But thanks to God, I was able to come to PSG and be myself again.’
United go into the game in brilliant form with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having guided his team to 10 wins in their last 11 in all competitions.
PSG meanwhile have won their last two after losing 2-1 to Lyon in Ligue 1.
The French champions PSG are unable to select an injured Neymar in Tuesday night’s clash with Man United and Di Maria is in line to face his former team.
