Angel Di Maria is a speedy winger from Argentina who is currently signed to Real Madrid. He is named Angel and sometimes he literally is an angel for his team. His performance in The Champions League final 2014 in Lisbon was a delight to watch for every Real Madrid fan. From a losing position to a memorable La Decima and it was all thanks to Di Maria. He is a hard worker in the field. He runs from one post to another either to retrieve the ball or to set it up for his teammate. His presence on the field can never go unnoticed. Di Maria is unlucky to be playing in the shadow of Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid and Lionel Messi at Argentina. If he played at any other club he would have been their main star. He is capable of running through any defense on a given day. If only Di Maria was fit enough to play in the final, Argentina would have won the World Cup 2014. Di Maria is the heart and soul of the Argentina football team and I believe him to be a better player for Argentina than Lionel Messi.
Angel Di Maria has started his career in 2005 at Rosario Central in Argentina by coming up its ranks. He was transferred to Benfica for 6 million euros in 2007. After showing his skills in Benfica he was spotted by Real Madrid. Real Madrid bought Di Maria for €25 million. After his move to Madrid, he became a star among the star-studded Madrid line-up. He helped the Los Blancos regain European glory in 2014. He is an architect of the game. Maradona once said he could be the next Argentina superstar. Predominantly a left-footed winger Di Maria still can play on both sides of the field. Di Maria is always on the run and gives his heart out for his team. When Real Madrid bought Gareth Bale everyone thought it was the end for Di Maria at Madrid. But with his performances last season he proved that Di Maria is something else.
Real Madrid has always been keen on signing young talents and Di Maria once joined as one. But with the arrival of Toni Kroos and James Rodrigues, many think there is no place for him in the lineup. But we don’t know yet what will happen as Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain are looking desperate to sign Di Maria.
Style of Play
Real Madrid plays fast counter attacking football and Di Maria used to star of the process. He is fast and furious when he touches the ball. When in the form he runs the defenders ragged with his swift touches and high speed. Di Maria is one of the best crossers of the ball and stylish attacking midfielder. His corners are accurate and his long ranges shots with power are dangerous.
