Angel Di Maria may be having a blast at the Copa America but he did not really enjoy his first season at Old Trafford as his performances did not impress and he was later dropped from the starting eleven.
Despite being his side’s record signing, Di Maria was dropped to the bench and in recent weeks, rumors have been going round that Di Maria may be leaving the club. Di Maria came up to debunk those rumors as he stated that he was uncomfortable sitting on the bench but he was more than willing to stay and fight for his jersey. After stating that he was uncomfortable on the bench, the Argentine was asked if he would leave the club in the summer he responded saying: “No [I will not leave], because I’m not thinking like that,” he insisted. “In Madrid there were times when I was whistled around the stadium but faced it and then it turned around. I like to deal with things.” Di Maria went on to state that he wanted to win the Copa America with Argentina.
Despite his poor run of form Di Maria managed 10 premier league assists last season, bettered only by Cesc Fabregas of Chelsea. Impressive.
