PSG-Troyes (2-2): another offering from Di Maria

The tribute came from the edge of the field. A few minutes before Troyes-PSG this Sunday, May 8, Thierry Henry, consultant for Prime Video, did not hide his pleasure in seeing Angel Di Maria established by Mauricio Pochettino against Troyes. “I’m happy to see Di Maria play,” said the former Gunner, before detailing the reasons for his attachment to the 34-year-old Argentinian, at the club since 2015 and called to leave next summer, for lack of extension of his contract.

“He is a very important player in the history of PSG, launched Henry. He always played where he was asked to play. He deserves a special farewell tribute from PSG fans. “With the persistent sulking of the Parisian ultras, the times are however not at the party on the side of the Park, but that did not prevent Di Maria from putting itself in value very quickly. From the 6th minute, he first rolls up a splendid shot from the left that Moulin slams for a corner with a superb save.

Club’s best passer

A few seconds later, another magic paw from the Argentine left-hander flew over the Trojan defense to land on the left foot of Marquinhos who closely deceived Moulin (1-0, 6th).

A year ago, on the evening of May 20, Di Maria became the best passer in club history. This Sunday evening, he played his 293rd match with Paris, two less than Matuidi. If he scored 90 goals, he now has 113 assists! That for Marquinhos was his 6th in Ligue 1 this season, where he has only started 17 times in 36 games.

This Sunday, despite the presence of Messi, uncertain since the day before due to rib pain, Di Maria had been aligned on the right side when it was necessary to go back to January 23, with the reception of Reims, to find trace of his last tenure. home. “I’m happy to play with the others,” he said during the Prime Video microphone break. I feel good. »

In the second half, Di Maria will be close to repeating the same performance on a new cross, coming from the left this one, for the head of Marquinhos. But the Brazilian will not be efficient enough (84th). A few minutes later, he gave way to Gharbi, 18, like a passing of the baton, like another decisive pass… There are two games left for Di Maria to delight the PSG supporters.
