PSG, now headed by former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino knocked out Spanish giants Barcelona in the UEFA champions league knockout stage on Wednesday, 10th of March 2021, on a 5-2 goal aggregate.

After the game, Di María gave a warm hug to his fellow countryman Lionel Messi with a kiss on the chin, commiserating with the Barcelona captain after he missed a crucial penalty that could have saved the day for his men.

Ángel Di María joined PSG from Manchester United back in 2015 for an undisclosed fee of around £44 million on a four-year contract.

At Manchester United, under Louis Van Gaal, Ángel Di María could not stamp his authority in the English Premier League and the United's team, a club he joined from Real Madrid.

Following his move to PSG in 2015, Di Maria helped PSG secure a domestic quadruple. Last year, Di Maria also helped PSG reach their first-ever UEFA Champions League final in history, losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich.
