Ashley Young sends Angel Di Maria crashing into stands on Old Trafford return

welcome back

The former United winger was greeted by a hostile reception at his former club, and Young’s challenge was no exception

Ashley Young welcomed former team-mate Angel Di Maria back to Old Trafford by shoving him into the stands during Manchester United’s Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

Every touch by the Argentine was met with a chorus of boos from the United faithful, who are yet to forgive him for his hugely disappointing spell in Manchester.

And the biggest cheer of the night came when Young sent Di Maria flying into touch with an aggressive shoulder charge.

With the ball rolling out of play, both men were racing to get there first, and as they reached the touchline, the full-back made certain Di Maria wasn’t winning the race.


Young, who was already on a yellow card, leaned into the Argentine, who subsequently crashed into Old Trafford’s mental fencing via an unfortunate concrete drop.

The challenge went unpunished, and the game threatened to boil over as the French side took issue with Young’s aggression.

Di Maria, after receiving treatment, decided to give it back to the crowd by pointing to his ear and asking them to raise the volume.

As you can expect, United fans on Twitter had little sympathy for the winger.
