Angel Di Maria's wife has launched a big assault on the culture and the women of the city of Manchester, when discussing the Paris Saint-Germain forward's ill-fated time at Manchester United.

Jorgelina Cardoso while speaking on Los Angeles de la Manana discussed the Argentina international's problems in Manchester said "I remember Angel coming up and saying, An offer from Manchester United has come in. Maybe we'll be a little more financially secure."

"It was horrible. Manchester is the worst. It is all horrible in Manchester. In fact, I fought a lot with Angel about it. We lived in Madrid, Angel played in the best team in the world which for me is Real Madrid. We were perfect, the weather was perfect, the food was perfect. And suddenly he said that there was a proposal to go to Manchester. I told him, 'Not a chance. You are going alone. 'No, come on. Let's go.' he replied.

Di Maria joined Manchester United in 2014 for a then British transfer record £59.7 million but endured a difficult season at the club before he was sold to PSG.

His spell in Manchester was marred by a break-in at his home where armed raiders eventually fled empty-handed.

Jorgelina further spoke on the ill-feeling about the female citizens of Manchester. She said

"The people are all pasty-faced, prim and proper ... weird. They're walking down the street and you don't know if they're going to kill you or what. The food's disgusting. All the girls are all dolled up to the nines, perfectly made-up and there's me with my hair in a bun and with no make-up on," she added.

"We try to be closer when things go bad. I did not blame him for being there. I just told him, 'Darling, I want to kill myself, it is already night at 14:00 p.m. in the afternoon."

Di Maria left for PSG in a £44m deal in August 2015 and returned to Old Trafford in February four years later, where he was struck by a bottle of beer as he celebrated during PSG's 2-0 Champions League round-of-16 first leg win over United.
