Di Maria’s Top 10

Argentina and PSG striker Angel Di Maria opened up in a candid interview with Spanish newspaper MARCA and revealed which were his Top 10 most influential people in his career.

David Luiz
“He’s a great friend. I spent three very important years with him at Benfica”.

Edinson Cavani
“An exceptional striker and a great guy”.

Leo Messi
“One of the best in the world. Playing with him and being his friend is everything to me. Defending the national colours for Argentina with a player like him… words can’t describe it”.

Cristiano Ronaldo
“We shared many things together. He’s a wonderful person, very different from what you see on the pitch. He wants to win everything, score goals. It pains him when he doesn’t score and the team don’t win”.

Nasser Al-Khelaifi
“He always wanted to sign me and I’m very grateful for the lengths he went to”.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic
“There was only one name left for me to tick off on the list. Now that I’m finally playing alongside Ibra I can safely say I’ve played with all the best”.

Florentino Pérez
“I didn’t have much contact with him. Neither when he signed me, nor afterwards. I left like I did but I don’t bear any grudge”.

Carlo Ancelotti
“A great coach and a great person. He stuck by me during one of the most difficult times in my career”.

Keylor Navas
“There’s a lot of talk about De Gea, but Navas has gone from strength to strength. I went through something similar when I was joined by more famous players than me but I also ended up playing”.

Laurent Blanc
“He called me up when I was on holiday to ask me to come to Paris, telling me I was just the player he needed”.
