The Argentine winger is set to face off with his former side tomorrow night when Paris Saint-Germain take on the Red Devils in the Champions League.

And Di Maria has admitted there were problems with Louis van Gaal when he was at Manchester United.

He said: “I only stayed one year. It wasn’t the best period of my career, or they didn’t let me have my best time there.

“There were problems with the coach at the time.

“But thanks to God, I was able to come to PSG and be myself again.”

Di Maria has been in fine form for PSG this season, netting 10 goals and providing 10 assists in all competitions.

Ahead of the match Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened up on how he wants his side to approach the match.

“We’ve got to rediscover the Manchester United way of playing, and I don’t think many teams enjoy their nights at Old Trafford when we’re on song,” he told the UEFA website.

“It’s about taking the game to the opposition, always believing in yourself.

“If you asked other managers who played against Sir Alex (Ferguson)’s teams, the pace and the tempo going forward was key.

“I have three good forwards myself. As well as (Marcus) Rashford, (Anthony) Martial, (Romelu) Lukaku, we have (Alexis) Sanchez and (Jesse) Lingard. They can challenge PSG’s defence.”

United are unbeaten in 11 matches in all competitions since Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho.

And the Red Devils will look to keep that impressive run going against PSG.

They have been boosted by the news Neymar will not be playing due to a broken metatarsal.

And Edinson Cavani is also a doubt for the match at Old Trafford tomorrow which kicks off at 8pm.

Expected Manchester United XI: De Gea; Young, Lindelof, Bailly, Shaw, Matic, Herrera, Pogba; Lingard, Martial, Rashford
