Angel di Maria wants Champions League return

Manchester United winger Angel di Maria has admitted that he's desperate to make a return to the Champions League, reports the Daily Star.

The Argentine superstar, who joined the Red Devils this past summer, won Europe's elite competition with Real Madrid last season, and is now hoping to star in the tournament once again in the colours of Manchester United. 


United, of course, failed to qualify for Europe last season after ending in seventh place in the Premier League under David Moyes. 

With Dutch boss Louis van Gaal now in charge at the Theatre of Dreams, however, the Red Devils will be desperate to secure a top four place this term. 

Di Maria, then, will look to find his best form for United as he looks to help the club climb the league table. 

Speaking to Sport, the Manchester United winger: "It is every player's dream to win the Champions League.

"Yes, I do miss Champions League football. We will have to do our best this season so that we qualify for next year’s tournament.

"It won’t be easy. But some weeks ago we were seventh or eighth in the table, and now we are fourth.

"So we have to keep on working. The thing we aim for the most is qualifying for the Champions League, which is what this club deserves."


As well as insisting that he wants to play in the Champions League, he has revealed that he wants to win titles with the Old Trafford outfit. 

He continued by saying: "I also want to win titles, but I am aware that we will have to go step by step since the manager and some of the players are new."

There's no doubt about it, United are extremely unlikely to land the league title this season, but will be determined to make the top four. After their victory over Stoke City this past week, the Red Devils are sitting in fourth place in the Premier League - one point ahead of West Ham.
