He’s Played With Messi, Ronaldo, Zlatan, Neymar, Mbappe, Rooney… Angel Di Maria’s Top 5 Teammates

– I’m here with Angel Di Maria. And you are unique in having played with five of the greatest players of all time; [Lionel] Messi, [Cristiano] Ronaldo, Neymar, [Kylian] Mbappe, and Zlatan [Ibrahimovic]. Can you tell me a little bit about playing with them. Their styles, on and off the pitch, how they train, their personalities, a little bit about everything. We wanna know. – I will start with Leo. It’s very difficult to talk about these five players. It’s hard, I think they are players on a different level. Some players are here, but they are up there. So it’s different and hard to talk about them. Leo is an extraordinary player in all the aspects. He has extraordinary quality. I had the opportunity of playing with the other four, but I think Leo is different from the rest. For me, he’s definitely the best in the world, by far, honestly. He is a player with a lot of quality, a lot of strength and all his physical work in the gym. His work on the pitch, just being himself, gave him the possibility of winning five Ballons d’Or, to fight with Leo for these five Ballons d’Or. He also has an incredible quality. I used to wake up in the morning to watch the [English] Premier League, and I watched [Wayne] Rooney, Cristiano, and after that, to have the chance to play with them was incredible. I never could have imagined it, and it was something really special for me. Zlatan. His arrogance, he is the No. 1 in everything. He’s the one who wins everything, does everything, but he is a great guy. If you take away what he’s done on the pitch— where it’s him and him alone, and everything he’s won, he’s won in this way— off the pitch, he’s a great person. I’ve had the opportunity to share a lot of moments with him, and the truth is I am very happy to have met him. But he has that…on the pitch, everything is about himself, no one else, But everyone who knows him knows he is like that, and we take it in a good way. Then Kylian and Ney, I have both here. Well, Ney, he has the Brazilian style, having fun on the pitch with a lot of quality and a lot of technique. incredible one-on-one, and then he has all this Brazilian thing about showing off, to laugh and enjoy life on the pitch. And he has something very good and that is goalscoring, that he always scores, and I think he is also an extraordinary player. And Kylian, the big promise, the promise that already is not promise anymore. A player that will fight for the Ballon d’Or for sure. For me, when Leo retires, he will definitely be one of the candidates for the Ballon d’Or. In the meantime, while Leo’s here, it will keep being Leo for sure, there isn’t anyone else. But I think Kylian has everything [he needs] to become one of the best in the world. Honestly, he has extraordinary quality. He is an amazing guy, and on the pitch, he is a good teammate, and I think that’s very important. – Thank you so much, man. – No worries.

  1. Di María himself is a legend too. Real Madrid fucked up by getting too excited about James Rodriguez’s overhyped performance in the 2014 WC in Brazil and letting Di Maria go. If it wasn’t for Angelito, Madrid wouldn’t have won in Lisboa 2014. We miss you so much Fidello 🤍

  2. So disrespectful of them to not mention Jesse Lingard. That man has been carrying Man UTD on his back for years now, where is the respect?!

  3. he has no self belief, di maria has so much pace, dribbling and shooting ability(far more and equal to messi, ronaldo, zaltan, neymar rooney and all the shits in the world), but he wants to be a spectator other than competitor. he will be recognized only when he speaks for himself other than praising others.

  4. Di Maria is a beautiful player, and his past three seasons have been amazing. Too bad PSG has been so weak defensively and mentally in the champions league during that period.

  5. Fideoooo.. mostro total!!! como te banco flaco…. tu esfuerzo y golazos mundialistas (especialmente contra Suiza en Brasil y contra Francia en Rusia) nunca los olvidare!!!

    Aguante Argentina….. aguante el flacoooo!!!
