What Angel Di Maria said about Mourinho

Di Maria was quoted by Tribuna.com speaking with Libero, saying:

"Jose Mourinho is insane. With me, he was always a good guy. He fought with anyone though, he didn't give a f***. One time he fought with Cristiano Ronaldo telling him he didn't run, that everyone ran for him."

The winger left Real Madrid one year after Mourinho but despite his setback at Old Trafford, the attacker has been able to revive his career at PSG and helped them to reach their first ever Champions League final two seasons ago.
