The animosity between Di Maria and United supporters also derived from the 31-year-old’s celebration at Old Trafford, where he appeared to swear at the crowd after Presnel Kimpembe opened the scoring.
One fan even tweeted a doctored photo of United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer smiling while drinking from a PSG-labelled beer bottle.
Romelu Lukaku continued his fine form by giving United the lead after just two minutes, rounding PSG keeper Gianluigi Buffon before sliding in from an acute angle.

The hosts equalised 10 minutes later when Juan Bernat tapped in Kylian Mbappe’s low cross, restoring their two-goal aggregate lead.
United were handed a second goal on 30 minutes after Buffon spilled Rashford’s dipping shot, with Lukaku stabbing in.
Solskjaer’s men absorbed pressure in the second half but were handed a golden opportunity to score a winning goal in stoppage time.
Referee Damir Skomina ruled that Diogo Dalot’s shot had been handled by Kimpembe after consulting VAR, and Rashford converted from the spot.
