Angel DI MARIA assists twice for PSG in win against Manchester United

The 30-year-old kept his cool after a bottle was thrown at him but appeared to swear at Manchester United fans during the celebrations for PSG's opening goal.

As the PSG players celebrated on the byline, an incensed Di Maria let out his frustration by screaming "F*ck off!"

Di Maria was booed upon arrival in Manchester, a welcome that worsened as the game began as a PSG side, minus Edinson Cavani and Neymar, took on a United team riding an eleven-game unbeaten run.

The winger picked out Presnel Kimpembe from a corner for PSG's opener in the 53rd minute, before setting up Kylian Mbappe with a cross to score the second seven minutes later. "Puta!" to the United faithful, captured clearly by TV cameras.

United's woe was intensified when Paul Pogba was sent off late on in the second half for a second yellow card following a lunge on Dani Alves. Had this match been played on a pitch surrounded by an athletics track, for example, the coming together between Young and Di Maria would have looked like an innocuous shoulder-to-shoulder challenge.

Di Maria also apparently never wanted to come to Old Trafford, but it was his only option once it became clear that Real Madrid no longer wanted him. One user commented that the player had "turned Old Trafford into a pub".

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". Also, during an incident in the first half, Ashley Young shoved him off the pitch and he rolled into a metal barrier, but was able to continue after treatment. While he did showcase glimpses of his enormous quality, Di Maria wasn't able to do it on a consistent basis. There are still 90 minutes left.
