'I work my ass off at PSG!' - Di Maria hits out after missing Argentina call-up


Angel Di Maria PSG 2020-21

Paris Saint-Germain star Angel Di Maria has hit out at Argentina's decision not to call him up for upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

While the likes of Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martinez and Paulo Dybala were all included, Di Maria missed out despite starring for PSG last season as they reached the Champions League final.

The 32-year-old scored 12 goals and contributed 23 assists in all competitions for Thomas Tuchel's side last campaign and clearly feels he deserves to still be playing for his nation.

"I can't find an explanation, I have no words. Argentina's national teamis the most important for me," Di Maria toldradio showCloss Continentalabout not being included in the squad.

"If I work my ass off at PSG itis to have a chance in the national team and be able to compete. It's difficult to understand that being in a good moment I am not called.

"If I'm not called it's because they don't want to call me. I'll keep fighting to be in Argentina's national team.

"Am I old at 32? Many people say that I am already old, but I am 32 and I keep running in the same way, in every game I show that I'm not old, and I can be at the level of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe."

After starring in a 3-0 win over Nice earlier this week, Di Maria took to social media and seemed to take a crypticswipe at his national team omission.

“Whatever happens I will never lower my arms, I never did, less now," he posted on Instagram.

"I always fought and I fight for my goals and my dreams, now more than ever with my head held high to continue, continue and continue.”

Di Maria nowfaces a tough few weeks at club levelafter being handed a four-match ban for his involvement in a fiery melee with Marseille earlier this month.
