Angel Di Maria goading Man Utd fans after being shoved by Ashley Young

Angel di Maria vs Man Utd

Manchester United face a huge uphill battle to get past Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

The first-leg of of the hugely anticipated Champions League tie was dominated by the visitors, who will take a two-goal lead back to the French capital

Presnel Kimpembe - who was lucky to still be on the pitch after a string of fouls - scored the opening goal of the game from a corner, which was poorly defended by United.

French wonder-kid Kylian Mbappe then added a second shortly after, with Angel Di Maria - a former United player - assisting both goals.

He was one of the big stories in the build-up of to the game, with the Argentine winger enduring a dreadful year in Manchester back in 2014.

The former Real Madrid man was woeful in the first-half at Old Trafford, with his major contribution to the match being shoved off the pitch by Ashely Young just before the break.

United's captain for the night was incredibly luck to not get a second yellow card for his actions, which you can see below.


Bit uncalled for, Ashley.

However, the United fans certainly weren't slating the right-back, with his shove arguably bringing the biggest cheer from the crowd in the opening 45 minutes.

Di Maria required some treatment before returning to the field of play and footage picked up his gesture to the crowd upon his return.


Argentine asks the United fans to turn the volume up on their booing, a bold move by any player.

But it seemed to pay off, with Di Maria taking the game by the scruff of the neck in the second-half and putting PSG firmly in the driving seat to progress.
