Man United charged by UEFA over bottle throwing incident involving Di Maria

Manchester United have been charged by UEFA after a part of their supporters threw objects in the direction of Paris Saint-Germain‘s Angel Di Maria in Tuesday’s Champions League conflict at Old Trafford.

Former United player Di Maria was jeered by the house supporters proper from the beginning of the match, having endured an underwhelming spell on the club within the 2014-15 season.

It was his first return to Old Trafford since leaving for France in 2015 and he went on to have a main influence, setting up both PSG goals as they ran out comfortable 2-0 winners.

Prior to the objectives, Di Maria was ready to take a nook within the first half and several other bottles had been thrown in his path – the Argentine reacting by selecting one up and pretending to drink from it.

The behaviour of PSG supporters can be below scrutiny, because the French champions have been charged for the setting off of fireworks, throwing objects, a crowd disturbance and acts of damages.

The latter cost is reportedly in reference to break to seats within the Old Trafford away part, with claims within the Manchester media that 800 chairs had been ruined.

UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body will cope with the case on February 28.

However, Di Maria seems to have escaped disciplinary motion for allegedly shouting expletives at United followers throughout PSG’s celebrations for their first aim.

The return leg will happen on March 3 on the Parc Des Princes, with United now overwhelming underdogs in the tie to qualify for the quarterfinals.

The Red Devils are back in motion subsequent Monday within the FA Cup in opposition to Chelsea, whereas PSG resume their Ligue 1 duties on Sunday in opposition to Saint Ettiene.
