Angel di Maria has been named Manchester United’s Player of the Month for September after making a fantastic start to his career.
The Argentinian scored two goals and grabbed two assists in three September appearances including his wonderful chip against Leicester.
With 68 percent of the vote, Di Maria won by a landslide victory and Ander Herrera came in second place with 23 percent.
Speaking to Manutd.com about his first trophy as a United player, Di Maria said he was happy with how his United career started and looked forward to scoring more goals in the future.
“I am very happy to have received the award but I’ve got to stress that it’s all about the team,” Di Maria said.
“I’m happy that my career here at Manchester United has started very well, and I hope that what I’m doing out there on the field is helping us to pick up points and victories.
“I think it would be the two goals I’ve scored so far. They were decent goals and I was pleased with them, and I think it’s probably goals that help you win awards like this.
Above all, though, I’d like to say that I have been working hard to help the team pick up good results – that hard work is important, and I think it has helped me win this award.”
