Manchester United’ Winger, Angel Di Maria struggled in his first season at Old Trafford following a 59 million pound move from Real Madrid. Despite his struggles, one of the few moments were Di Maria produced real brilliance earned him the accolade of Goal Of The Season for his brilliant run and lob against Leicester City in September.
The Barclays Premier League held a mini competition tagged “the goal cup” to determine the best goal with fans allowed to vote off goals. Phillipe Coutinho’s strike against Southampton on the 22nd of February made it to the final and lost to Di Maria’s lob after beating Matt Phillips’ strike. Phil Jagielka’s wonder goal against Liverpool and Bobby Zamora’s strike against West Brom were also in the running.

Di Maria may have struggled this season but he has proven that he can deliver. The question is his consistency and the probability of him remaining a Manchester United player next season.
