Di Maria’s family were taken hostage during a home robbery
The Argentine was taken off during Paris Saint-Germain's loss to Nantes on Sunday as Leonardo gave the news that his home had been robbed with members of his family present to Mauricio Pochettino.
The news shook the host as they struggled for the remainder of the game, leading them to a 2-1 home defeat to Nantes.
Pochettino said when he was discussing his side's performance after the match: "It's not an excuse but there was a drop in energy.
"We talked about things other than football after the game in the locker room."
"The truth is that the first period we controlled the match, but after the equalizer, we had trouble and we were not strong enough to hang onto this match."
