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

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

Angel Di Maria screamed at the top of his voice at Manchester United supporters after the Ligue 1 champions netted the opening goal in Tuesday's Champions League clash at Old Trafford.

His performance was memorable for many reasons, as Man United's fans and players looked to get at di Maria early on.

And in the second half, he had a beer thrown at him by a fan.

Paris Saint Germain scored the first goal of the game in the second half after Angel di Maria provided a brilliant assist to Kimpembe.

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 objective".

Sharing a picture of her husband pretending to swig the beer, she captioned the image: "What a nice little gift!" Now, with both Neymar and Edinson Cavani missing through injury for PSG this week, the 30-year-old becomes even more of a key man against his former employers.

A run down the left wing and a low cross in to Kylian MBAPPE lead to PSG's second goal.

Di Maria had been booed by the Red Devils faithful since getting off the team coach.

The Argentinian arrived at United from Real Madrid for a whopping £59.7million - at the time a record signing for a British club.

Last month, Di Maria - who has made 90 appearances for Argentina - spoke out about his miserable season in the Premier League. The Argentina global was only at Manchester United for one year before he refused to join them on a pre season tour in order to force a move to PSG. It wasn't the best period of my career, or they didn't let me have my best time there.

He was handed the club's iconic number seven shirt and his arrival had the potential to beckon a new era of success alongside heralded new manager Louis van Gaal. The return leg will be played in March at the Parc des Princes, with PSG firmly in the drivers' seat to qualify for the quarterfinal.
