Di Maria taken off with suspected injury in Copa America final
Angel di Maria had to be taken off with a suspected hamstring injury in the Copa America final.
The Manchester United winger was running at full pace before he pulled up and he wasn’t able to run it off, so he had to be substituted.
Di Maria, 27, will be devastated to have gone off in the Copa America final having missed the World Cup final because of an injury as well.
In both the World Cup and Copa America, Di Maria played an important role in Argentina earning their place in the final, so it is a real shame for him to have had such bad luck with injuries.
Man United fans will understandably be concerned about any injury for Di Maria because it was so crucial for him to have a proper pre-season in order to start well next year.
Hopefully Di Maria’s injury is nothing too serious but it looks like it could be a hamstring problem. We’ll bring you an update as soon as there is one.
