Angel di Maria scores rabona from corner-kick

Published Add your comment

Angel di Maria hasn't had the best of seasons since he swapped Real Madrid for Manchester United last summer.

The Argentinian international set the Red Devils back almost £60 million and is the club's record signing, however he's not been able to repay the faith shown in him so far. 


Di Maria has mustered just three goals in the Premier League from 22 appearances this season amidst rumours that he's unhappy at Old Trafford and could be seeking a move to Paris Saint-Germain when the current campaign comes to an end.

However the latest video from Adidas shows that despite his struggles he's lost none of the ability that made Manchester United fork out all that cash last year. 


The former Real Madrid ace is seen on a training pitch with the ball at the corner flag. He then rather nonchalantly bends the ball into the open goal with a rabona flick, walking off before the ball goes in, safe in the knowledge that his work is done. The video was filmed for Adidas' #therewillbehaters campaign.

Di Maria will likely take to the field later on in Manchester United's derby showdown against Manchester City at Old Trafford, although he could well start on the bench. The two teams currently lie in third and fourth respectively with one point separating them.
