Angel Di Maria reveals motivation behind the number 7 jersey

Angel Di Maria broke the British transfer record when he made a £59.7million move to Manchester United this summer, and since then he has set the world alight with scintillating performances. He already has three goals and three assists in his five Premier League games so far, and is certainly proving himself in England.

Di Maria has revealed his motivation behind his good performances, in particular focussing on the famed #7 shirt.

When quizzed about the #7 shirt, Angel said:

“Its a source of motivation. When you wear a shirt that’s been worn by the likes of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, it’s something you’re always going to be pleased about.” He  said.

“The fact that the club have chosen to give me that shirt number also gives me a huge confidence boost, so that’s why I’m very happy to have this number.”


It really is great to watch a player of Di Maria’s calibre tear up the Old Trafford turf every other week, as he really is one of the worlds best. The best thing about it is that he genuinely seems to love playing for Manchester United, and he’s fit right into our philosophy and structure straight away.
