Di Maria: The Truth Behind My Man Utd Exit

Paris Saint-Germain's new signing Angel Di Maria has revealed the real reasons as to why he left Manchester United.

The Argentine signed for PSG early in August, and has now cleared the air on his United exit, explaining that he clashed with manager Louis van Gaal on more than one occasion.

"At Manchester United, I played very well but then got injured," he told Sky Sports.

"Things did not work out and I also changed my position.

"The coach was the one who decided that and I ended up being more on the bench than in the team.

"It is difficult to adapt to Van Gaal because he points to his philosophy. Everyone takes what he wants and does.

"I started very well with him and then had a couple of clashes.

"There came a time when I did not have a good relationship with Van Gaal and that influences much in a player's mind.

"The positive thing is that I made many friends, which is the best thing in football. Things with them were very good."
