Manchester United have been finding their feet once again, since the stunning 1-0 defeat at home to Southampton last month. One of the players who has impressed under Van Gaal this season is Ashley Young, and he has been full of praise for his United teammate, Angel di Maria.
“Angel was a fantastic signing,” Young said
“Real Madrid have other top players in their team, like Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo, but he was the one who stood out for me in that team last season.”
To be fair to Young, Angel di Maria was certainly the standout player for Real Madrid last season. The Argentine had by far his best campaign in his career to date, and he was at the heart of everything that was good about Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
After an equally stunning start at Manchester United at the start of this term, Di Maria’s form has certainly halted since then, but we all know he has it in his locker to regain that confidence and hopefully he’ll get back to his best in the not too distant future.
Is Young correct? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
