Ex-Man Utd flop Angel Di Maria leaves Juventus fans fuming after embarrassing howler in Europa League KO

ANGEL DI MARIA embarrassed himself with a wayward chip shot during Juventus’ semi-final exit from the Europa League.

The Italian giants fell at the final hurdle as they were knocked out by Sevilla, losing 3-2 on aggregate.

Damn the Di Maria miss is worse than i thought, never realized Kean was that open.

I still think because Di Maria doesn’t have a right foot it’s hard for him to pass or even shoot properly from his left in this position. pic.twitter.com/FewK2p1QK4

Angel Di Maria has been known in the past for his impressive chips

Juventus lost 2-1 on the night, but it could have been different had Di Maria put his side ahead early in the first half.

The 35-year-old was through on goal with a golden opportunity to score and chose to try and chip the ball over Sevilla goalkeeper Bono’s head.

The attempt was terrible and saw the ball go wayward leading to absolutely nothing.

To make matters worse Di Maria, who endured one awful season at Manchester United, had the option to square the ball to Moise Kean in the middle, but chose to go for glory himself.

The squandered opportunity set the tone for Juventus’ evening as they struggled to find the back of the net, scoring just once from 17 attempts on goal.

Juventus fans weren’t happy with Di Maria’s shocking effort and took to social media to vent their frustration with the World Cup winner.

One wrote: “Di Maria should retire with that miss.”

While another pointed out the option to pass to Kean, they said: “Damn the Di Maria miss is worse than i thought, never realized Kean was that open.”


Another fan added: “Sill being haunted by that terrible Di Maria chip attempt.”

One other fan suggested not trying to chip the keeper would’ve been a better option.

They said: “Dunno why Di Maria tried the chip rather than pick a corner and place the shot”

Juventus’ exit from the Europa League now means they will finish the campaign without a single trophy.
