Angel Di Maria insists Juventus forward Paulo Dybala was “misunderstood” when he said he finds it difficult to play with Lionel Messi for Argentina.
La Joya grew up idolising the Barcelona superstar, but has stated that he finds it difficult to play alongside him as they take up similar positions on the pitch.
“I think what Dybala said was misunderstood,” Di Maria told Fox Sports Radio.
“Messi does not inhibit me, I love playing with him, it delights me.
“The best thing that can happen to a player is to play with the best and with the aliens.”
