Di Maria Demands Regular Playing Time At United

Angel Di Maria admits he is uncomfortable at being left on the bench at Manchester United but insists he is not looking to leave Old Trafford.

The Argentina international made his final start of the Premier League season on March 4 as manager Louis van Gaal opted to play Juan Mata and Ashley Young ahead of him in wide areas.

Despite that, the £59.7 million signing from Real Madrid still managed to contribute three goals and 11 assists in the English top flight during his debut season with the Red Devils.

And now, Di Maria has spoken out about his situation and insisted that the break in to his family home and time on the bench has left him considering his decision to come to the Premier League.

“Has it been tough? Yes. For me, and my family. Not everything goes as I want, because I don’t play.

“ I came with an intention and end up on the bench. It’s hard to tell how I feel there.

“I started well, with goals and assists. I was having a good time, until I was out.

“It’s a little hard to explain why I do not play.”

But he insists he’s trying to get his head down and concentrating on having a better season for United next year.

“Do I want to leave? No, because I’m not thinking like that,” He continued, “In Madrid there were times when I was whistled around the stadium but faced it and then it turned around.

“I like to deal with things.”
