MANCHESTER United’s Angel Di Maria is excited about watching the Champions League from his own sofa.
The winger has spent four frustrating years at Real Madrid missing out on the most prestigious club competition in the world because he was always on the pitch playing in it.
He said: “When I was a boy in Argentina I used to dream of watching the Champions League on a gigantic television, but ever since moving to Europe I have been working nights.
“Tonight I have beer, I have nachos and I am on the edge of my seat waiting to hear Adrian Chiles introduce the game with an irritating, poorly executed pun.
“And I learn so much from the expert commentary of Andy Townsend. Who knows better about the top level of the European game than a man who twice won the League Cup?
“Football doesn’t get any better than this.”
