Manchester United fans look back on Di Maria’s spell following performance for Argentina

Angel di Maria arrived at Manchester United with plenty of promise in 2014, but he was unable to fulfil it.

The winger failed to settle into life in the North-West of England, and as a result he left after just one season.

The 30-year-old signed for Paris Saint-Germain in 2015 and he has been at the French outfit ever since.

On Saturday, Di Maria represented Argentina in their last-16 clash against France at the World Cup in Russia.

The four-time title winner scored a stunner of a goal with a long-range effort during a thrilling encounter.

Unfortunately for Di Maria and his teammates, Argentina were unable to get over the line as they were beaten 4-3 by France.

United fans were not exactly cut up when the winger left Old Trafford three years ago due to his lacklustre performances on the pitch.

Some, though, could not help but praise the player’s strike on the global stage.

Others wondered why he never made it at United.
