Park des Princess will miss his accelerations, his dangerous left leg, his defensive aids, his goals and, above all, his aids. PSG bids farewell to the most virtuous player in its history this Saturday, The Argentine Angel de Maria will not be renewing himself this June 30 after seven years at the club.
Farewell to DI Maria
“He will forever be remembered by fans as a player with an unwavering commitment to his unwavering commitment to the preservation of our colors.” PSG leader Nasser al-Khalifi has summed up the “El Fidio” deal he signed with Manchester United in 2015 for 63 million euros.
With tears in his eyes, the left-handed winger went in a Parc des Princess style and gave him a long round of applause and shouted his name.
He assisted on the first goal for Kylian Mbabane in the 25th minute and scored his team’s fifth goal against the Mets in the 68th minute in the final game of the season.
Say goodbye to a dream. He was replaced in 1974 by the Spanish Ander Herrera and received a huge reception. In a gesture rarely seen in a professional competition, his teammates created a sidewalk for him.

In the history of PSG
Argentina hugged all his colleagues and said goodbye. In seven seasons with Paris Saint-Germain, the Argentine international has played in 295 matches, scoring 92 goals and providing 112 assists, according to club figures.
He entered PSG’s history on May 19, 2021, winning the Coupe de France final against Monaco (2-0), signing 104 assists with Parisian colors and overtaking Safet Susic as the company’s best passer.
Encouraged by nearly 50,000 fans, the left-footed winger has won five French championships and several trophy titles. His stain, the Champions League, he could not lift with PSG, but when he was at Real Madrid (2010-2014) in 2014, Lisbon destroyed Atletico Madrid defender in the final.
“El Fidio” left PSG in his late thirties – he turned 34 in February – and with fewer game minutes than he wanted. Owner prices have skyrocketed this season since the arrival of Leo Messi. He has added 31 games in which he has scored four goals and provided 9 assists.
In the Champions League, he has played in only 5 games. Messi’s close friend de Maria has wanted to renew with PSG since he won gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The player, who made a name for himself in Europe at Benfica (2007-2010), wanted to continue his career in Europe, but his expectations were dashed.
