A Jordan Kitted Out PSG Arrive In Manchester In Style

That year was Di Maria's only since 2008 without a trophy; just three league goals and a £60m price tag made him the symbol of a failed regime at United under Louis van Gaal, but Tuesday night only served to remind Old Trafford what they should have had. The United man did manage to get away from the Brazilian midway through the first half and impressively breezed past PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe on the right touchline - but his cross was too near to veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. This was the Di Maria £60m was supposed to buy. He showed no lack of desire in getting to the ball but it was noticeable that he was often being shadowed by Marquinhos whenever United were in possession, a clear sign of PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel attempting to shackle the World Cup victor.

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.

He was booed constantly by United fans and had bottles thrown at him, but the winger ultimately had the last laugh. One user commented that the player had "turned Old Trafford into a pub".

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




Unsurprisingly, Twitter users did not pass up the opportunity to remind United fans of not only Di Maria's return, but what happened on the pitch.

In truth, Young was perhaps fortunate to not receive a second yellow for the shove, however he survived and has since been applauded for his efforts by Man Utd fans. 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", he said, Sky Sports reported. He was a bit nervous and needed to be calmer in the first-half.

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".
