Angel di Maria: 'I'm happier under Laurent Blanc'

Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel di Maria says that he is happier playing under Laurent Blanc than former manager Louis van Gaal.

Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel di Maria has admitted that he is 'happier' working under current manager Laurent Blanc than he was old boss Louis van Gaal.

The 28-year-old moved to Les Parisiens last summer after a disastrous one-season stint under the Dutchman at Manchester United and has gone on to amass nine goals and 11 assists in 24 league appearances with the Ligue 1 champions.

Returning to Manchester today for the second leg of his side's Champions League quarter-final with Manchester City, Di Maria appeared to criticise Van Gaal for his on-field tactics.

"From the beginning [Blanc] was clear where he wanted to play me and has never changed his mind," Di Maria told reporters.

"He gave me total freedom to move where I needed to move. I'm very happy here and it wasn't the case over there."

United took a loss of around £15m when they offloaded Di Maria to PSG last summer.
