Liverpool fans have taken aim at Angel Di Maria after he told goal.com that Ligue 1 deserves more respect.

The £44 million PSG winger (BBC Sport) has suggested that France’s top division gets too much criticism and cited Liverpool’s dominance of the Premier League, as an example of why.

“Many feel Ligue 1 is weaker than others but look at England,” Di Maria said.

“Liverpool are streets ahead, and when we build up a similar lead it’s because the league isn’t as good?! There are fewer star names here, but the league is really competitive.”

 

Liverpool fans think that Di Maria has spoken completely out of turn though.

And they believe that the Argentinian international is wrong to suggest that Ligue 1 is anywhere near as strong as the Premier League.

Liverpool have indeed dominated English football this term, and have now established a 22 point lead at the top of the division.

But that advantage owes much to the strength of Liverpool’s team, rather than the weaknesses of others.

When Di Maria was playing in the Premier League he lasted just one season with Manchester United, contributing three goals and 11 assists over that time.
