Argentine winger, Angel Di Maria appears to be thoroughly enjoying life in Paris, France where he now plies his trade with Paris Saint Germain (PSG).
The former Real Madrid man joined English premier league side, Manchester United at the beginning of the 2014/2015 season for a British record transfer fee of £59.7 million. Despite starting the season on a promising note, Di Maria found it difficult to adapt.
The next summer he was off again and this time around, he joined Ligue 1 side Paris Saint Germain in a £44.3m. The 27-year-old found the net for PSG when they began their 2015/2016 champions league campaign against Malmo.
Speaking to UEFA.com, Di Maria admitted he is happy at PSG. He also revealed how much he missed not participating in the champions league the previous season which he spent at Old Trafford.
“Last year was pretty difficult for me – I couldn’t play and my injury was really complicated. Not being able to compete in the Champions League after having won it made it a pretty tough time for me.
“It’s really nice here. I train every day with a smile on my face – I’m happy to be here, and I have been settling in well with my team-mates.
“Paris is a really nice city. My family has felt very good here from the first day they arrived. That makes it a lot easier for me to focus on football.
“From the day I arrived here, I could see the quality of the players here and the ambition they have to win [the Champions League] – the desire they show in every training session and in every match.
“We all have the same ambition and desire to fight for it. And I think that with the players here we can achieve it,” he explained.
