Angel Di Maria hates Manchester United so much that he turns off the TV as soon as they come on, according to PSG team-mate Marcin Bulka.
And he added that the Argentina international doesn’t have a single positive memory from his time at Old Trafford.
After a decent start as a Man Utd player, Di Maria ultimately flopped and was one of the worst acquisitions of the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era, and that’s saying something.
He wore the iconic no.7 shirt and joined a list of flops to have worn it since Cristiano Ronaldo gave it up in 2009.
Bulka, who joined the Ligue 1 champions from Chelsea last summer, opened up to Polish football YouTube channel Foot Truck about Di Maria.
He said (as quoted by The Sun): “Di Maria hates Manchester United.
“He has no good memory of the time he spent there.
“In fact, when something related to Manchester United appears on television, it changes soon.”
Marcin Bulka (PSG goalkeeper): “Di María hates Manchester United so much. He doesn’t have one good memory from the club. Whenever we’re watching their games on TV, he tells us to change the channel. He can’t stand them.”

Pretty ballsy thing to come out and say — as it shows Di Maria has no respect for United, which is unsurprising because it never looked like he wanted to be here in the first place.
He joined United in 2014 under Louis van Goal for a then-club record £59.7m transfer fee from Real Madrid, as reported by BBC Sport.
One miserable season led to Di Maria’s exit. United cut their losses and sold him to PSG for £44m and the player’s form has picked up since.
