Angel di Maria won the free kick and delivered the resultant freekick that lead to Robin van Persie’s 94th minute equaliser against Chelsea on Sunday.

The Argentinean has spoken of his delight of signing for Manchester United and insists he will honour wearing the famous number seven shirt.

I have these amazing feelings about having moved to Man United. I’m so proud of myself, you know. It’s hard to explain it and put it in words. I wanted to wear this shirt. And it is so nice for me to wear the number seven shirt. It was worn by some of the greatest players in the club’s history and I do know that it is a huge thing for all Man United fans. I think people here are happy with me. So I must honour this shirt. I must confess that I had all these expectations – but Man United have exceeded my expectations. It has all been perfect for me so far.
