Di Maria thanks fans, hopes 'to win trophies' at Manchester United

Angel Di Maria Argentina

Angel Di Maria has been speaking about winning the September Player of the Month at United.

Manchester United spent big this summer, but no bigger than when they splashed out the cash on Argentine international Angel Di Maria.

They spent £59.7 million to snap up the 26-year-old this summer, and he has immediately endeared himself to the United faithful.

His two goals have helped - but it is the overall quality of his performances that has really caught the eye at Old Trafford in his first month at the club.

In fact his September was so impressive that the club's fans have already decided to vote him Player of the Month for September.

After accepting the award Di Maria spoke to the cameras of MUTV about the triumph, thanking the fans for their appreciation:

"I’d like to thank all the fans for voting for me. It’s really satisfying for me to get the award in my very first month in Manchester. I’m happy and let’s hope things continue to go well and over the next few months we pick up many more victories and win trophies.”

Indeed it will be that last part that gets United fans excited. Di Maria has not come to Manchester to simply earn a decent wage packet, although we are sure he doesn't mind that bonus.

He is here to win medals in the age old tradition of this football club. If he carries on with the same form and United can get the rest of the team firing on all cylinders, who would doubt their potential to lift trophies at the end of the season?
