Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Angel di Maria has taken a swipe at former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, after his recent display against the Red Devils in the Champions League at the Old Trafford.

Di Maria was directly involved in the goals that gave PSG the advantage over Manchester United and he was subsequently mocked by Manchester United fans, the home crowd threw a bottle of drink at him, during the clash but the Argentine remained unperturbed throughout his time on the pitch.

The former Real Madrid star spent a season with the English team before he secured a move to PSG in 2015.

And he recalled to ESPN Redes: “I was at Manchester and everything was fine with Van Gaal during the first two months.

"After one fight, things weren't the same. The relationship wasn't the same.

“The fight with Van Gaal occurred because he was always showing me bad and negative things and all that held me back.

"One day I fought with him. I told him I didn't want to see those things anymore, that I was doing things well and asked him why he wasn't showing me good things.

"He did not like how I spoke to him and from there the whole problem started.”

Di Maria would welcome his former side in Paris for the second leg of the clash 6th of March.
