- Di Maria failed to replicate his fine form at Old Trafford after his big money move from Madrid
- The Argentine was signed by United during Louis Van Gaal's spell at the club as manager
- The 30-year-old spent just a season with the Red Devils before sealing a move to PSG
Paris Saint-Germain playmaker, Angel Di Maria, has reflected on his frustrating spell with Manchester United after his big money move from Real Madrid in 2014.
Di Maria signed for the Red Devils when the club was experiencing turbulent times following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
The signing of the Argentine was announced during Louis Van Gaal's reign who had replaced David Moyes who had been sacked after a poor run of games.
However, the former Real Madrid star failed to replicate his fine form at Old Trafford, often attracting criticism from United fans.
Di Maria eventually sealed a move to French giants, Paris Saint-Germain, where he has since rediscovered his feet and enjoying the best times of his footballing career.
In a candid interview ahead of his return to Old Trafford for the Champions League, the star winger has taken time out to mirror his disappointing spell with the Red Devils.
The 30-year-old alluded to 'complications' under Van Gaal's management, admitting his time with the Premier League side was not the best in his career.
"I only stayed for one year. It was not the best time of my career, or rather I was not allowed to spend my best time there," Goal.com quoted the Argentine.
"There were complications with the coach at the time," he disclosed.
"But thank God, I was able to come to PSG and demonstrate again who I was," he added.
PSG will face an in-form United side in the first leg of the round of 16 in the Champions League in a crunch match Di Maria is expected to feature on Tuesday, February 12.
