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

Ashley Young earned his one year contract extension in the eyes of some Manchester United fans when he chose to shoulder barge Angel Di Maria into the metal boards a good five yards from the sidelines at Old Trafford.

On Tuesday, Di Maria was shoved into a fence by Ashley Young, hurting his arm in the process. 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.

During the game, Di Maria, who used to play for United, was noticeably booed by the home fans.

Di Maria's wife Jorgelina Cardoso was quick to get in on the fun.

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. Now, with both Neymar and Edinson Cavani missing through injury for PSG this week, the 30-year-old becomes even more of a key man against his former employers.

To rub salt into the United wounds, Di Maria was then on hand to provide the assist for the second goal of the game, firing the ball into the path of wonder kid Kylian Mbappe to slot home on the hour mark and put the game beyond reach for United.

Di Maria had been booed by the Red Devils faithful since getting off the team coach.

But despite being the most expensive transfer to a British club at the time, he was widely considered a flop.

Last month, Di Maria - who has made 90 appearances for Argentina - spoke out about his miserable season in the Premier League.

"I only stayed one year".

"It wasn't the best time of my career, or should I say I wasn't allowed to have the best time of my career".

He was handed the club's iconic number seven shirt and his arrival had the potential to beckon a new era of success alongside heralded new manager Louis van Gaal.

Man United face PSG at the Parc de Princes for the second leg on March 6, looking to overturn a two-goal deficit.
