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

Ashley Young pushes Angel Di Maria on a yellow

Di Maria arrived in Manchester after leaving Real Madrid in 2014 only to leave a year later for PSG with just four goals and an impressive 11 assists to his name in 32 appearances. Di Maria was handed the famed No. 7 jersey at the club, but the pacey wide man never really managed to live up to the lofty expectations that were placed on him upon his arrival. "I only had problems with the coach [Louis van Gaal] here".

But that pushes another South American closer to centre stage and he is a man very familiar to United observers; former record signing Angel di Maria. And United are braced for a UEFA fine after a number of flares were set off by PSG supporters shortly before kick off.

Unfazed, Di Maria picked up the missile and proceeded to pretend to drink out of the bottle, much to chagrin of United fans, but much to the sheer amusement of the Twitterati. The Argentine was sold to PSG the following summer for €63m (£44m).

Some argued that Pogba deserved a straight red for the tackle, while others suggested that Ashley Young was lucky to stay on the pitch after colliding with Angel di Maria in the first half.

"There was no need to push him [Di Maria] into the fence", Tuchel told reporters. The Argentina worldwide 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. "If you tease him, it does not make him weaker", he said, Sky Sports reported.

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 goal". "In the end he did well". We need to continue to work for what's coming. 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.
