Di Maria Not Keen On Facing Germany

Angel Di Maria says he would rather not partake in Argentina’s friendly with World Cup champions Germany on Wednesday.

The new Manchester United signing has questioned the purpose of the replay of the World Cup final just 52 days after the two sides met in Brazil.

"The season is very long, with the Copa America too at the end of the year. I believe these games, sometimes, I would prefer to avoid them,” he told ESPN.

“This is not about revenge (for the World Cup final), it is just a friendly game, nothing more.

"They are the world champions and we are coming to their party. They will present the trophy. But, well, we will try to do our best."

Di Maria, who was injured during the World Cup final, joined Manchester United for a British transfer record fee of £59.7 million and insisted the club’s fortunes will change with the arrival of Radamel Falcao.

"It's true we have not won yet but we will put United where they'll belong this season. You'll see,” he added.

"Falcao is a great forward and he will help us."

Argentina will face Germany in Dusseldorf at 20:45 tonight.
