Replica Manchester United jerseys with Angel di Maria on the back were the most unpopular among fans at an event for exchanging unwanted football shirts. 

The Carling Shirt Amnesty gives fans the ability to exchange their jerseys for a more favourable option and it seems United fans were keen to forget about the whole Di Maria ordeal.

As per the Mirror, Red Devils fans were also eager to exchange their old Robin van Persie jerseys after the Dutch forward left the club for Fenerbahce.

Raheem Sterling, who unceremoniously left Liverpool for Manchester City, was high on the list of unpopular players.

As were Christian Benteke, who left Aston Villa to join the Anfield club, and Saido Berahino, who tried to force through a move from West Bromwich Albion to Tottenham Hotspur.

On the other hand, new Old Trafford arrivals Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin were on the list of most printed jersey, in fourth and ninth, respectively.

Harry Kane topped the list after his 31 goals in all competitions for Tottenham last season.


It comes as no surprise to see Di Maria top the list of the most unwanted shirts; he is hardly remembered fondly in Manchester. 

Having joined the Red Devils from Real Madrid for £59.7million last summer, the Argentine winger was out the door and heading to PSG 12 months later.

After getting off to an excellent start, his time in the North West soon turned sour. Off-field issues, couple with a fall-out with manager Louis van Gaal, led to the former Real Madrid man becoming unhappy with life in England. 

The 27-year-old will go down as one of the biggest flops in Premier League history after scoring just four goals in 32 games for United.
