Di Maria does admit that the tactics employed to keep live wire wingers quiet are different to how they do is in Spain and Portugal, but he also admits that he is no afraid of getting hurt.

“But I never have any fear. If they have to hit me, then so be it. That’s part of the game.
“I will always try to play my way, no matter how big the defenders are.”
