PSG boss Tuchel suprised by Di Maria's hostile Old Trafford reception

Ashley Young earned his one year contract extension in the eyes of some Manchester United fans when he made a decision to shoulder barge Angel Di Maria into the metal boards a good five yards from the sidelines at Old Trafford.

He was jeered by the Old Trafford faithful after Ashley Young sent him flying into the advertising hoardings in the first half.

Paris Saint-Germain's head coach Thomas Tuchel said of the shove: "There was no need to push Di Maria into the fans but I don't think it was on objective".

He was returning to Manchester for the first time since leaving for the Ligue 1 team a season later, following a poor, trophy-less year at Old Trafford, for PSG's last 16 first leg tie in Europe's elite competition, and United fans didn't exactly roll out the red carpet for the former Red Devil.

And after setting up Presnel Kimpembe for the opening goal with a brilliant corner, he turned to the supporters and, according to RMC Sport, shouted "F*** off" and 'Hijo de p*** (son of a b****).

And in the second half, he had a beer thrown at him by a fan.

Di Maria admitting that his issue was with Louis van Gaal isn't the most surprising thing with the Dutchman preferring a more defensive approach whilst he also moved the midfielder around, even playing him as a striker at one point.

Collecting the ball wide left, Di Maria's perfectly-weighted centre left Mbappe with no option but to score after the Frenchman had burst past an unknowing United defence.

But despite being the most expensive transfer to a British club at the time, he was widely considered a flop. He made 27 appearances in the Premier League but managed just three goals, and was sold to Paris Saint-Germain during the summer of 2015.

"I'm happy that he stayed confident".

"It wasn't the best time of my career, or should I say I wasn't allowed to have the best time of my career".
