I WON'T CELEBRATE IF I SCORE AGAINST MADRID - DI MARIA
The 27-year-old revealed he still has fond
memories of his time at the Spanish capital club,
and feels Paris Saint-Germain can win the
Champions League this term.
Paris Saint-Germain star Angel Di Maria
promises not to celebrate if he scores against
former club Real Madrid in Group A of the
Champions League on Wednesday.
The Argentine was sold to Manchester United by
los Blancos in the summer of 2014, with Di
Maria later claiming he was unappreciated at
the Santiago Bernabeu.
Despite the circumstances of his departure
however, the 27-year-old, who lifted the
Champions League trophy with Madrid that
summer, said he would not celebrate out of
respect for the club he has fond memories of.
"If ever I score a goal, I will not celebrate
because deep in my heart I will never forget
what I experienced at Real," he told Canal+ .
Di Maria moved to Parc des Princes in
August, and believes the French champions
have the quality to challenge other European
powerhouses in order to win Europe's premier
"We will fight together to win the Champions
League," Di Maria said.
"Upon my arrival, I noticed the high quality
of Parisian players. With the players we
have, we can do it."
Both the Ligue 1 and La Liga leaders enter
Wednesday's clash with perfect records in
Group A so far.
