Manchester United fans remained patient with Angel di Maria last season.
The winger started off the campaign with what was an absolutely phenomenal opening few games but then lost his form and was never able to recover that, despite his efforts as the games wore on.
Given that Louis van Gaal spent nearly £60m on bringing Di Maria to United, fans hoped he would be able to bring influential performances every week but it hasn’t quite worked out that way so far.
However, as Di Maria showed with his performance for Argentina in their Copa America game against Jamaica, there is plenty of reasons to be excited about Di Maria this upcoming season:
Very impressed with Angel Di Maria tonight, played a very good game. It's nice to see him perform to the level he showed last year. #mufc

For United fans, it was superb to see Di Maria in full flight because that’s when he is at his best and wasn’t something which we saw enough of last season.
It’s fair to say Di Maria hasn’t lived up to his club record price tag so far at United but he could change that all with consistent performances like this.
