Di Maria: I left Madrid at the right time

Despite struggling for form since leaving Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel Di Maria believes he left the Spanish giants at the perfect time.

The Argentina international left the Santiago Bernabeu for Manchester United in a £59.7million move in August 2014.

He netted just four goals in 32 appearances for the Red Devils, though, before leaving the Manchester outfit for Paris Saint-Germain just a season later.

Di Maria has not set the world alight with Les Parisiens as yet, but feels he was justified in his decision to leave Madrid.

"After winning 'La Decima' my mind was set on staying at Real Madrid for many more years, but these things happen in football," Di Maria said in an interview with beIN Sports.

"Since I left Real Madrid haven't won anything. In any case, I think that I left at the right time and the right way."

On Madrid supporters, Di Maria added: "They're very demanding. The club has won a lot and the fans are used to success. You get more affection from the supporters here in France."
