Di Maria ‘hates’ Manchester United so much he must change channel

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Marcin Bulka  has revealed that his teammate Ángel Di María "hates" Manchester United so much that he even turns off the TV whenever “something related” to Manchester United appears on the screen.

The 32-year-old arrived at Old Trafford in 2014 for a then club-record £59m from Real Madrid with plenty expected as Louis van Gaal splashed the cash.

But the Argentine struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League where he managed just four goals in 32 appearances before moving to PSG just a year later.

The winger has since rediscovered his best form in PSG, and now his teammate Bulka has lifted the lid on the animosity Di María feels towards his old club.

"Di María hates Manchester United," Marcin Bulka  stated. "He has no good memory of the time he spent there. 

"In fact, when something related to Manchester United appears on television, he changes the channel quickly."

Di Maria has been able to resurrect his career during his four-and-a-half years at the Parc des Princes.

The Argentine has picked up 12 honours in the French capital and is full of thanks for how the Parisians took him in following his difficult season in Manchester.
