A Jordan Kitted Out PSG Arrive In Manchester In Style

Angel Di Maria had the last laugh on his return to Old Trafford as he inspired Paris Saint-Germain to a 2-0 win over Manchester United while being the subject of abuse and anger from the home supporters.

He was returning to Manchester for the first time since leaving for the Ligue 1 team a season later, following a poor, trophy-less year at Old Trafford, for PSG's last 16 first leg tie in Europe's elite competition, and United fans didn't exactly roll out the red carpet for the former Red Devil.

Despite his starring performance, Di Maria was fortunate not to get injured when Ashley Young pushed him off the pitch and into a metal barrier before half-time - a move that drew criticism from PSG coach Thomas Tuchel after the game.

Di Maria was clearly in ecstasy after the goal and wasted no time in taunting the fans Old Trafford with abusive gestures during the celebrations. So when he assisted the French side's first goal of the night, a corner smashed in by Kimpembe on the edge of the six yard box after slipping away from Matic, he took the opportunity to return the favour.

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.

A run down the left wing and a low cross in to Kylian MBAPPE lead to PSG's second goal.

Di Maria, who had a beer bottle thrown in his direction in the second half, drank in the criticism from United fans, many of whom have not forgotten his disastrous spell at the club in the 2014/15 season.

Young's shoulder barge on Di Maria into the hoardings was definitely careless and using excessive force, and under this language he should have been shown a second yellow card. Orsato eventually ruled that Young should go apologise to Di Maria, but no further punishment was made. If you tease him, it does not make him weaker.

"I thought he had a good relationship with the fans".
