"The transfer to Paris Saint-Germain? It was a blessing", were the words of Angel Di Maria.
After four years in Spain at Real Madrid, the Argentine decided to move to England and the Premier League for a new experience in 2014. Whereabouts? Manchester United, who was under control by Louis Van Gaal at the time. With high expectations and a great desire to impress, it did not as planned. Di Maria only scored 3 goals in 27 matches for the Red Devils before moving on - it was a year to forget. However, he was immediately presented with another big opportunity to redeem himself: the Ligue 1 and PSG. Why did Di Maria fail with Man United? Was it his fault? The Environment? The staff? The response from the now 30-year-old, who was interviewed by radio France Bleu, does not leave much room for doubt.
"They never allowed me to do my best there there. I had problems with my coach, but thank God I managed to come to Paris Saint-Germain, where I returned to my old self".
