‘He hates Manchester United’: PSG goalkeeper Marcin Bulka says Angel Di Maria loathes his former club and reveals the forward ‘changes the channel’ if they’re on television!

- The 32-year-old can’t even stand to watch his former side on the television
Angel Di Maria cannot stand the sight of Manchester United. So much so, that he has to change the channel if they are ever on television, according to his PSG team-mate Marcin Bulka.
Di Maria endured a torrid time at United after completing a then club-record £59.7million transfer from Real Madrid in August 2014 before he was eventually shipped off to the French capital a year later.
While Di Maria is in much happier surroundings, he can’t stand to think back at his failed move and resents the Red Devils for it.

Bulka, formerly on the books at Chelsea, has revealed that Di Maria harbours a lot of hate and that he has ‘no good memories’ in the north west of England.
‘Di Maria hates Manchester United,’ Bulka told Polish YouTube channel Foot Truck. ‘He has no good memory of the time he spent there.
‘In fact, when something related to Manchester United appears on television, he changes the channel quickly.’

The 32-year-old recently hit out at his former club for handing him the iconic No 7 shirt when he arrived from Real Madrid – a responsibility he wasn’t ready for.
Adnan Januzaj was in possession of the No 11 at United at the time, meaning Di Maria was pressured into taking the No 7 – he claims.
‘I don’t really know. When I arrived, I saw that the No 11 was available,’ he told Ligue 1 when asked why he took that shirt with the French giants.
‘It’s a shirt number I wore a lot when I was younger and I was keen to get once again.
‘At Real Madrid, No 11 was already taken, so I took 22. At Manchester United they gave me No 7, I didn’t get a choice. I would have liked 11 but there we are. Here, I had a choice, so I chose 11!’

Since ending his ill-fated time at Old Trafford and moving to PSG, Di Maria has gone on to win nine major honours – including three Ligue 1 titles.
And reflecting on his time so far at the Parc des Princes, the 31-year-old is effusive about the club helping him rediscover his passion for football: ‘PSG is very important to me. They welcomed me with open arms in a period when I was finding it difficult in Manchester.
‘I came here with ambition, and determination to succeed. Little by little, I showed that I was capable, that I could help the club achieve great things. I always do my best to help the club succeed.’
