PSG's Di Maria expected United fans' abuse accused of swearing in reply

As Paris Saint-Germain celebrated the goal, Di Maria turned aggressive and appeared to shout "F*** off P**" towards the United fans.

He was booed constantly by United fans and had bottles thrown at him, but the winger ultimately had the last laugh.

On the pitch, the Argentine was slow off the mark.

In addition, Man United captain on the night Ashley Young also "pushed" Di Maria into the hoardings in the first stanza, with fans enjoying every bit of the action.

No yellow came, but the stick kept coming.

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

China's foreign ministry struck a confident tone yesterday as a junior delegation of American negotiators arrived in Beijing. After meetings in Washington last week ended in a stalemate, officials kicked off another round of talks in Beijing.

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

Manchester United signed the Argentine worldwide from Real Madrid in the summer of 2014, in a deal worth £60 million, smashing the then British record transfer fee. A particular moment in the right corner of the pitch with Mbappe, with whom he teamed up to twist and turn the United defence inside-out, was met by huge cheers from the travelling support, and more anger from the home crowd.

The end of Di Maria and Van Gaal's relationship wasn't good.

There wasn't much doubt which way it was going to go for Angel di Maria.

The Frenchman took his haul under United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to eight goals in 10 games to help the Red Devils move into the Premier League top-four courtesy of a 3-0 win at Fulham on Saturday. The injuries to Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard towards the end of the first half necessitated a change in formation after the interval, with Pogba drifting further forward and into a central position, alongside substitutes Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata in playing just behind frontman Marcus Rashford.

Di Maria stayed down for an extended period of time while players argued with each other and complained to the referee Daniele Orsato.
