However, Di Maria appears to have avoided action for inciting fans after picking up the bottle of beer and pretending to drink from it, and for mouthing obscenities into the crowd following PSG's opening goal in their 2-0 Champions League win.

Manchester United signed the Argentine global from Real Madrid in the summer of 2014, in a deal worth £60 million, smashing the then British record transfer fee.

Manchester United's first-half clash with PSG could have taken a dramatic turn had referee Daniele Orsato not looked favourably on Ashley Young's challenge on Angel Di Maria.

The United man did manage to get away from the Brazilian midway through the first half and impressively breezed past PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe on the right touchline - but his cross was too near to veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

PSG superstar Angel Di Maria has blamed Louis van Gaal for his nightmarish stay at Manchester United during the 2014-15 campaign.

The manager said: 'I thought he had a good relationship with the fans.

To rub salt into the United wounds, Di Maria was then on hand to provide the assist for the second goal of the game, firing the ball into the path of wonder kid Kylian Mbappe to slot home on the hour mark and put the game beyond reach for United.
