Man Utd fans believe club aimed dig at Angel Di Maria during win over PSG

Manchester United fans are convinced the club took aim with former Old Trafford star Angel Di Maria following Tuesday's 2-1 win over PSG.

The Red Devils got their Champions League campaign off to a winning start in the Parc des Princes, with David de Gea playing a starring role in the French capital.

United posted a photo of the Spanish stopper on Instagram, as he stole the ball away from Di Maria's feet.

The club's caption read: "Big players step up in the big moments."

And United fans are convinced that was a dig at Di Maria, who failed to live up to his hefty reputation during his time at the club.

"I see what you did there admin," one supporter said.

"UNITED WITH THE DISS INJECT IT," another wrote.

"You guys knew what exactly what you were doing when you posted this picture," added a third.

"Shots fired," said another.

Di Maria's time in England ended in failure after he failed to impress during his time at United.

But former team-mate Wayne Rooney has divulged that a burglary earlier into his time in England affected the PSG man – and his family.

"He’s a wonderful player," said Rooney in his column for The Sunday Times.

"When he came to United I remember Louis van Gaal saying to the team: 'He is the only one who is allowed to dribble with the ball.'

"Angel works tirelessly on the pitch and his delivery, vision and awareness is brilliant.

"He could have been a major star at United but at the time we were going through a bit of a transition and it was tough for him to settle.

"He had young kids and lived a couple of houses down from me and someone tried to burgle him. I remember that really shook him and his family.

"From then on, really, you knew it was going to be tough for him and it was probably better for him to leave."
