Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel Di Maria believes he left Real Madrid at the right time as the Spanish side has lacked silverware, even calling the Bernabeu crowd “very demanding.”
Di Maria, 27, left Madrid to join Manchester United last year after winning the Champions League with Los Blancos.
The Argentinian struggled to adapt to the English side having made a British record move of £59.7 million, only to be sold to Paris Saint-Germain this summer for £44m.
The contradiction comes when last October he stated he never wanted to leave the Spanish capital and accused the Madrid hierarchy of lying about his wage demands.
“After winning La Decima my mind was set on staying at Real Madrid for many more years, but these things happen in football,”
“Since I left Real Madrid haven’t won anything. In any case, I think that I left at the right time and the right way.” Di Maria told beIN Sports.
Di Maria has adapted well to life in the French capital with Laurent Blanc’s side being 10 points clear on the Ligue 1 table. He also said, “They’re very demanding. The club has won a lot and the fans are used to success. You get more affection from the supporters here in France.”
When Paris faced Real Madrid this season he also said that the Parisians “dominated” Madrid despite losing 1-0 in the Champions League on Nov. 3.
