Angel Di Maria has taken aim at former club Manchester United once again by claiming he ‘didn’t give a f***’ about the club’s iconic No 7 shirt that he was given to wear.
The Argentine joined United in a then club-record £59.7million transfer from Real Madrid in August 2014 but went on to endure a disastrous 12 months at Old Trafford.
Di Maria’s time in the north west of England resulted in him resenting the club – and now he’s sensationally claimed that the club’s No 7 shirt meant nothing to him despite its long and storied history.
The No 7 shirt, worn by the likes of David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and George Best in the past, was given to Di Maria upon his arrival – but it was the No 11 that he was truly after and never got.
‘I didn’t give a f*** about the Manchester United No 7, at first they talked to me a lot about it… it was just a shirt,’ he told Libero.
Di Maria also blamed his shortcomings on then-United boss Louis van Gaal, claiming the Dutchman was the worst manager he ever had.
‘My problem at Manchester was the coach,’ Di Maria added.
