Angel di Maria, a former Real Madrid winger, has revealed that playing alongside compatriot Lionel Messi at Argentina national team and Paris Saint-Germain is the best thing that has happened in his glittering career so far.
Di Maria, 35, played just a season with Messi during their time together at PSG.
However, the former Manchester United and Juventus star lacked regular playing time in the 2021-2022 season.
Di Maria started 22 out of 31 matches across competitions for the French Ligue 1 champions.
“The best thing that happened in my career is that I played with Leo Messi [Lionel Messi] in the national team and club,” Di Maria said (via Albiceleste Talk).
He added, “I participated with him [Messi] for a year in the club and did not play. I knew that if he came I wouldn’t play much.”
Di Maria is close to joining Benfica after departing Juventus as a free agent this summer, while Messi will join MLS side Inter Miami when his contract with PSG expires at the end of this month
