Di Maria one of the four best players in the world, says former Manchester United defender Heinze
Former Manchester United and Real Madrid defender Gabriel Heinze believes Angel Di Maria is one of the four best players in world football.
The 26-year-old moved to Old Trafford in a €75 million deal in August and has made an impressive start to his Premier League career with three goals and three assists in five games.
Heinze, who played in the same Argentina side as Di Maria at the 2010 World Cup, also claims the midfielder will have an easy time settling at United.
“Anything I say about Angel Di Maria is not enough. For me, he’s one of the four best players in the world,” Heinze told reporters.
“He’s already reached an amazing level and arrived at an amazing club where they will look after him and he’ll perform really well for them.
“I think everyone needs time to adapt, especially in the English league.
“You need to adapt but the club can help you and Manchester United will make things easier for you.”
