Manchester United and Paris St Germain charged by Uefa

13 February 2019

- Angel Di Maria shouted at Man United's fans after PSG took the lead at Old Trafford.

However, the United fans certainly weren't slating the right-back, with his shove arguably bringing the biggest cheer from the crowd in the opening 45 minutes.

Prior to the goals, Di Maria was waiting to take a corner in the first half and several bottles were thrown in his direction - the Argentine reacting by picking one up and pretending to drink from it.

Di Maria required some treatment before returning to the field of play and footage picked up his gesture to the crowd upon his return. "Puta!" to the United faithful, captured clearly by TV cameras. Di Maria was handed the famed No. 7 jersey at the club, but the pacey wide man never really managed to live up to the lofty expectations that were placed on him upon his arrival.

Later, he blew kisses to the stands and imitated drinking from a bottle that was hurled at him by a fan. Let us know in the comment box below.

To rub salt into the United wounds, Di Maria was then on hand to provide the assist for the second goal of the game, firing the ball into the path of wonder kid Kylian Mbappe to slot home on the hour mark and put the game beyond reach for United.

The Argentine asks the United fans to turn the volume up on their booing, a bold move by any player.

As well as losing 2-0, the night ended on a more sour note, as Paul Pogba was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Di Maria stayed down for an extended period of time while players argued with each other and complained to the referee Daniele Orsato. If you tease him it doesn't make him weaker, of course'.

Paris Saint-Germain's head coach Thomas Tuchel said of the shove: "There was no need to push Di Maria into the fans but I don't think it was on goal". "In the end he did well". While he did showcase glimpses of his vast quality, Di Maria wasn't able to do it on a consistent basis.
