My problem at Manchester was Van Gaal - Di Maria

The Argentina international forward Angel Di Maria says he "didn't give a f*ck about the Manchester United No 7" after being given the jersey at Manchester and claims Louis van Gaal is the main reason for his failure in England.

Di Maria told TyC Sports: "

I didn't give a f*ck about the Manchester United No. 7, at first they talked to me a lot about it, it was just a shirt


"My problem at Manchester was the coach. Van Gaal was the worst of my career. I would score, assist, and the next day he would show me my misplaced passes. He displaced me from one day to the other, he didn't like players being more than him."

While Van Gaal was never suitable for Di Maria, he had considerable success at

Real Madrid

under Jose Mourinho.

Di Maria said: "

Mourinho is insane, with me he was always a good guy. He fought with anyone though, he didn't give a f*ck. One time he fought with [Cristiano] Ronaldo telling him he didn't run, that everyone ran for him


Di Maria

joined Manchester United in 2014 on a €59 million transfer and left the club after a disappointing season, scoring just four goals in all games.
