Former Manchester United winger, Angel Di Maria has revealed some of the reasons he left the English club barely after a year he joined from Real Madrid for £59.7million. The ex Benfica player who switched to PSG in the summer claimed that his unsettled family was the main reason he moved to France.
He was quoted by the Mirror UK thus:
“Honestly, we were not happy. At the beginning, we were a little. But then things became complicated. Life in England was a bit difficult. It is not easy for a South American. Some people get on fine, and for others it is harder to adapt.”
He also stressed that his strained relationship with Van Gaal and the burglary incident in his house prompted his decision to leave.
“I didn’t have a great relationship with the coach, so I think the decision to join Paris was the best solution. After the break-in it wasn’t reasonable to stay. My family wasn’t happy. My daughter was suffering. So it was important to leave. From the little I have seen, our life here in France resembles more the life we led in Spain or Portugal. And at the moment we are 100 percent satisfied.”
