Say what you like about his Manchester United spell and the quality of French football, but there’s no denying that the Paris Saint-Germain star is one of the world’s best playmakers on his day.

Besides, there have been plenty of matches where you could argue that the former Real Madrid star has been more important to the French champions than Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

And although PSG weren’t exactly depending on Di Maria during their Ligue 1 clash with Angers on Wednesday night, he certainly put on a show for his teammates regardless.

With Mauricio Pochettino’s men leading 3-0 courtesy of Mauro Icardi, Neymar and Vincent Manceau’s own goal, Di Maria decided to turn on the style with an outrageous rabona assist.

Showing gorgeous footwork in the penalty area, Di Maria created so much space for himself that finding Icardi with a pass across the six-yard box looked to be something of a formality.

But almost as though he was deliberately rubbing salt into Angers wounds, the Argentine magician decided to pull off a stunning rabona that Icardi capped off by tapping into the open net.

It might not be Erik Lamela scoring with one in the north London derby, but it’s pure footballing sauce nonetheless, so be sure to check out Di Maria’s fantastic piece of skill down below:
