Manchester United fans were spotted throwing bottle and could face punishment.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s unbeaten run came to an end as Paris Saint Germain defeated Manchester United by 2-0. Goals from Kylian Mbappe and Presnel Kimpembe gave the Ligue 1 champions crucial away goals. For United the defeat came with many wounds. Paul Pogba was sent off, Martial was injured, however it seems United could face actions from UEFA.
Manchester United could face potential disciplinary action from Uefa after a bottle was thrown at former United midfielder Angel Di Maria. The Argentina international was booed from the outset by the home support at Old Trafford. Di Maria would have the last laugh, with PSG comfortably beating the hosts thanks to goals by Presnel Kimpembe and the irrepressible Kylian Mbappe.
And matters could get worse for United after a fan from the home end threw a bottle at Di Maria as he went to take a second-half corner kick. The versatile midfielder joked by pretending to drink from the bottle before handing it to an official. But should the incident be included in the match referee’s report then European football’s governing body could well take action against the Manchester club. Di Maria endured a tough season at United after becoming a £60m signing. Di Maria was inheriting the club’s famous number 7 shirt that had been worn by legends Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Paris Saint-Germain came in for him at the end of that disappointing campaign. Di Maria was too happy to swap the north-west for Ligue . And since then he rediscovered his form and proven his worth as a top-class midfielder. But resentment still lingers with the Old Trafford crowd making their feelings clear. And Di Maria returned the favour. He was shouting a very English expletive back at the home supporters when PSG went ahead through Kimpembe’s header.
It was certainly a poor gesture from the crowd towards Di Maria. It seems the shouting and hatred towards the former Manchester United player resulted in the Argentine giving an impressive performance.
