Angel Di Maria

Paris Saint Germain (PSG) winger Angel Di Maria scored a spectacular winner to give his team the advantage needed to win the French Super Cup.

Di Maria and PSG came from a 1-0 halftime deficit to beat Rennes 2-1 and win the French Super Cup as a result.

Adrien Hunou gave Rennes the lead in the first half of the game played in Shenzhen, China before Kylian Mbappe scored the equalizer in the second half thereby paving the way for Angel Di Maria to score the winning goal of the game via a spectacular freekick.

PSG set a new record with a seventh successive French Super Cup title.

Lyon had the record after winning six French Super Cup titles between 2002 and 2006.

Angel Di Maria was a Manchester United player for one season.

He joined the Red Devils from Real Madrid in a £59.7m deal in the summer of 2014.

Di Maria became a Manchester United player while Louis Van Gaal was the club manager.

He has been at PSG since leaving Manchester United in 2015.

PSG secured the French Super Cup title against Rennes without star player Neymar who was in the stands.

Neymar wants to return to Barcelona after two years in Paris and a bid is expected in the coming days.
