Di Maria mocks Man Utd fans after bottle thrown

In the absence of Neymar and Cavani, di Maria's performance will be of further importance to PSG on a night when he was always going to be scrutinised anyway due to his past connections with United.

Angel Di Maria had the last laugh on his return to Old Trafford as he inspired Paris Saint-Germain to a 2-0 win over Manchester United while being the subject of abuse and anger from the home supporters.

On the pitch, the Argentine was slow off the mark.

Di Maria, of course, made the most of it and held a seemingly injured arm as his team-mates surrounded Italian referee Daniele Orsato in a desperate attempt to force a second booking on Young.

After a goalless first 45 minutes, PSG finally found a breakthrough when boo boy Di Maria fired a corner into the United box which was volleyed home by French global Presnel Kimpembe on 53 minutes.

Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel Di Maria said he fully expected a hostile reception upon his return to former club Manchester United on Tuesday night amid accusations that he swore at the home fans during his celebrations.

"I'm very happy. It's always unsafe with him, with corners, and of course a superb assist for the second goal in the open position and with a flawless pass for Kylian".

The Argentine set up Presnel Kimpembe moments before the break for PSG's opener.

Paris Saint-Germain's head coach Thomas Tuchel said of the shove: "There was no need to push Di Maria into the fans but I don't think it was on goal". Di Maria was handed the famed No. 7 jersey at the club, but the pacey wide man never really managed to live up to the lofty expectations that were placed on him upon his arrival. "If you tease him, it does not make him weaker", said his manager Thomas Tuchel, summing up his contribution perfectly, even noting Di Maria's weak start to the game as he won just one of his nine duels.

Eventually, it was made clear that Pogba had been shown a second yellow card for his poorly timed challenge on Dani Alves, having already been booked in the first half. While he did showcase glimpses of his vast quality, Di Maria wasn't able to do it on a consistent basis.
