ANGEL DI MARIA has apologised to Manchester United fans for his unsuccessful season at Old Trafford and suggested outside factors contributed to his failure to deliver in England.

Di Maria completed his move to Paris Saint Germain yesterday after enduring a difficult year in the Premier League and the Argentine winger has thanked the United staff, players and supporters.

In an open letter, di Maria expressed his regret at the way things worked out while claiming there were reasons outside his control that ultimately effected his level of performances.

“To Manchester United:

“I write this note to thank all the Manchester United family for the great support received during the year I’ve been part of this Club.

“When Manchester United chose me as part of their team I felt extremely honoured because I knew what this Club means and how it trusted me.

“Nevertheless, I’m aware things didn’t work as we all expected and believe me, I feel really sorry about it. However in the career of a football player sometimes the unexpected and unwanted may happen.

“I can guarantee you it was not for trying. I did my best but football is not like maths: often a lot of things out of our control affect the way we feel and the way things turn out. I am sorry it did not work out as I would have wished in this amazing huge club.”

Di Maria joined United last summer for a British transfer fee of £59.7 million from Real Madrid but after a promising start, struggled to settle in England.

“I want to give special thanks to all the Directors and Management of Manchester United as well as to every member of the staff and colleagues as they gave me all their support. Also a special mention to all the fans who always trusted me and showed me their respect and love.

“Now is time to move to PSG but the Glorious Manchester United Club will be forever in my memory!”
