“He HATES Manchester United”: PSG goalkeeper Marcin Bulka says Angel Di Maria hates his former club and reveals the forward “change the channel” when they are on television!
- PSG goalkeeper Marcin Bulka claims that Angel Di Maria hates Manchester United
- The Argentinian attacker went through an old time in 2014 on Old Trafford
- The 32-year-old cannot even watch television on his former side
Angel Di Maria cannot stand Manchester United. So much so that he has to change the channel if they ever appear on television, according to his PSG teammate Marcin Bulka.
Di Maria had a terrible time in United after completing a then £ 59.7 million transfer from Real Madrid in August 2014 before he was finally shipped to the French capital a year later.
Although Di Maria is in a much happier environment, he cannot help thinking back to his failed move and finds the Red Devils to blame.

Bulka, previously in the books at Chelsea, has revealed that Di Maria has a lot of hatred and that he has “no good memories” in the North West of England.
“Di Maria hates Manchester United,” Bulka told the Polish YouTube channel Foot truck. “He has no good memory for the time he has spent there.
“In fact, when something appears with Manchester United on television, he changes channels quickly.”
The return of Di Maria to Old Trafford last February was a bad mood for the Argentinian, but he still managed to inspire PSG to a 2-0 win at night.

The game had a windy start for the winger, who was bundled into the billboards by his former teammate Ashley Young, to the delight of the 74,054-strong Old Trafford crowd.
Di Maria received a constant barrage of abuse from the unsympathetic home crowd before continuing to set both goals in the match.
Videos also seemed to show that Di Maria United fans told them to ‘f *** off’ after setting Presnel Kimpembe to score the opening goal.
One of the most memorable moments of the collision came when a bottle of beer was launched in Di Maria when he took a corner.
In response, Di Maria mocked the crowd picking up the bottle before pretending to drink it – an action that UEFA almost punished him for.

More recently, the 32-year-old turned away at his former club because he handed him the iconic No. 7 shirt when he arrived from Real Madrid – a responsibility he didn’t want.
Adnan Januzaj was in possession of the No 11 in United at the time, which means that Di Maria was pressured to take the No 7 – he claims.
‘I do not really know. When I arrived, I saw that the No. 11 was available, “he said Ligue 1 when asked why he took the shirt with the French giants.
‘It’s a shirt number that I wore a lot when I was younger and I wanted to get it again.
‘At Real Madrid no. 11 was already in use, so I took 22. At Manchester United they gave me no. 7, I had no choice. I would have liked 11 but there we are. I had a choice here, so I chose 11! “

Since ending his ill-fated time at Old Trafford and moving to PSG, Di Maria has won nine major awards – including three Ligue 1 titles.
And considering his time so far in the Parc des Princes, the 31-year-old is exuberant about the club that helps him rediscover his passion for football: ‘PSG is very important to me. They welcomed me with open arms at a time when I was having a hard time in Manchester.
“I came here with ambition and determination to succeed. Little by little I showed that I was capable, that I could help the club achieve great things. I always do my best to help the club succeed. “
