Angel di Maria wants to improve claims Gerardo Martino

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Angel di Maria is willing to change his image and improve after a disappointing second half of the season at Old Trafford, according to Argentina boss Gerardo Martino.

As reported by fourfourtwo, the former Barcelona manager has insisted that he will back the versatile winger if he decides to stay or leave Manchester in the upcoming transfer window. 

Di Maria, of course, failed to produce the goods in the latter stages of last season as he more often than not found himself on the bench under the guidance of Louis van Gaal at the Theatre of Dreams.

Martino, though, fully expects him to kick on in 2015/16, claiming that the ex-Real star will do all he can to prove his credentials.

Big decision 

"Speaking about Angel, these kind of decisions are personal," Martino told a news conference.

"It's hard to give an opinion and help him. It has to be decided by him and his family.

"I can tell that taking into account the kind of player we're talking about, there's no doubt that he has pride and will to improve.

"It's logical, he wants to offer his best performances at Manchester United. He had a season when the ending was not good, but his beginning was really good.

"His form went from high to low, that's clear. He knows that and has the willing to change this image. Whatever makes him happy, we will be by his side."

Huge season ahead

One thing's for sure, Di Maria is going to need the help and guidance of Louis van Gaal if he's going to succeed on English soil. At the end of the day, throughout his struggles, the Argentine ace failed to hold down a permanent position in the side last term, often being moved from position-to-position.

There's no doubt about it, the midfielder has more than enough about him to return stronger next term, but must be fully committed to the cause if he's going to prove himself at United. He could still become the club's talisman sooner rather than later.
