Angel di Maria looked to be worth every penny of the British transfer record Manchester United paid for him when he first came to the club. Our fans hadn’t been this excited since Cristiano Ronaldo, with Di Maria picking up the ball in our half and terrifying the opposition defence.
Since then, the Argentinean has gone of the boil, but in an interview with MUTV, has insisted that he is working hard to rediscover his top form.
I’ve had a couple of games where things haven’t gone as well as they could have. I think it’s part of that settling-in process to the English game. I started off quite well but I think that then made expectations rise and everyone thought I would just carry on in the same way. But football is like that, sometimes you have these ups and downs. It took me a while to settle fully in each of the countries where I’ve played before. I just have to keep working hard and focusing on what I want, which is to do as well as I possibly can.
