Rio Ferdinand reckons Angel Di Maria flopped at Manchester United because he doesn't like being the main man.
Manchester United broke the bank to sign the Argentine for a then club-record £60million back in 2014, and handed him the iconic No.7 shirt.
But Di Maria bombed at Old Trafford and after just one season the forward left Man United for his current club Paris Saint-Germain.
Di Maria has been much better at PSG, and is in action for the Ligue 1 giants against Bayern Munich this Sunday in the Champions League final.
Ahead of the match, Ferdinand provided his thoughts on where it all went wrong for the 32-year-old during his one season at United, claiming he didn't like being the star man.

"He brings that co-star element," Ferdinand told BT Sport. "I think there's players that want to be the star, want to be the main man.
"I think this guy is a player that is happy playing back-up, being the co-star to the superstars.
"He's done it at Real Madrid with Ronaldo, Argentina with Messi and now we're seeing it here with the guys Mbappe and Neymar.
"Look at those stats, the most assists since 2015 I think it was, second only to Messi in the top five leagues and this guy is a fantastic footballer.
"It didn't work out for him at Manchester United, and I think there he was asked to be the creative force, the main man and that doesn't suit him."
